Roots X

Roots X

Piece description from the artist

While living in Puerto Rico in 2004 I began painting an abstract image of web-like vertical drips. Soon after, I came across one of Old San Juan's amazing banyans—enormous trees with hundreds of ropey roots that hang from their branches to the ground—and it struck me as a likely resemblance. I titled that first painting Roots. Since then, this pattern has caught my eye in many unexpected places and forms, such as streaks of rust on subway station walls, cracks in the sidewalk, light reflected underwater, and images of cerebral neurons. The ubiquity of this pattern in nature intrigues me, and I create these in a meditative state.
