I want viewers to discover vignettes of surfaces emerging in my work from different vantage points and viewing distances. I aim to grab their eye from afar and keep them coming in closer and closer. To the left an aggregate of material debris stretched over a wire frame flaps like a rudder. The large, pink and yellow field is a resting space between two cacophonies. The exposed honey-comb circle reveals depth and hints to beneath the surface of things. The right side erupts organically, like a turkey tail (trametes versicolor) bloom on the side of a fallen log. c.mariner stands for cosmos mariner.
