Description A large Monarch Butterfly hangs suspended from a Balsam branch with warm amber shades in the background. A wheat field behind the butterfly has sinuous bands of musical notes twining among the sheaves.
Marion Muirhead, Waterloo, ON Member Since March 2007 Artist Statement An impossible decision between art, literature, and music has led me to find the universal patterns that apply in nature, language, and paralanguage. I wrote my dissertation on complex systems dynamics, otherwise known as Chaos Theory. In this way, I've found that these interests are complementary and rather than detracting from each other, they lend a wholeness to my understanding of each area of interest.
I hope you enjoy these images and find them both simple and complex: there is always something new to be found even in the most familiar, every-day sights . . .
