I am greatly interested in nature and the world around me. As an artist I prefer to explore it through science or maths rather than through direct observation. L-Systems are a set of mathematical rules that describe the construction of a wide range of organic structures including trees and the network of blood vessels in the body.
“L-System Fragments” is a series that derives from the original “L-Systems” series. “L-System Fragments” are a way of putting a microscope on the subject and digging deeper. In these paintings I am looking for component parts, discreet segments in the same way we seek out cells or even individual molecules or atoms that make up living structures.
This study (acrylic sketch) was made as part of my process and so may not be as refined as some of the final pieces. Being part of the early stages of committing my work to canvas makes it a very affordable way of collecting works from the L-System Fragments series. Each work is unique, it has a title to identify whether it is a study or development piece, numbers are simply a way to identify them as individual works. Final/Gallery pieces are just titled "L-System Fragment" with a number.
