Footprints

Archival acrylic ink on vellum, 3x21 feet.

The original inspiration for this large-scale work is the patterning that results in the trails that sea anenomes leave. Normally invisible, one can sometimes catch a glimpse of this on the glass at an aquarium. Tiny, barely visible strips of residue as the anemone goes about its nearly stationary life. It seems highly unlikely that these sea creatures are aware of the mesmerizing geometric patterns that they leave. These trails are an unintentional effect, an unseen beauty, created by the act of simply going about one's life.
