Morphology as Art: Fleeting and Enduring Structure in Nature – Hiding in Plain Site.
ARTIST TALK: Saturday July 20 at 4PM and 7PM
Come enjoy the art of Patrick Lysaght at Santa Fe’s newest studio/gallery: Entropy. Saturday July 20th, from 2pm until 10pm at 1220 Parkway Drive, just down the street from Meow Wolf. Lysaght’s enhanced photography originates from wilderness adventures traveling around the planet in pursuit of patterns that are common at vastly different physical and time scales. He is interested in how structure forms and evolves in nature, where it is common and spectacular. Nature is a master of artistic expression and she sculpts timeless topographies into grand, microscopic, fleeting, and enduring structures.
“The underlying forces that give rise to branching or dendritic structure may be as different as the molecular arrangements in the nucleation and growth of ice crystals on my windshield and the erosion patterns seen in alluvial flows of magnificent mountain ranges. Ice grows as a function of temperature and humidity into a stunning variety of fractal shapes including Christmas tree, broad leaf, nano-tube, and parabolic crystal structures. The branching geometry, clearly visible without magnification, emerges as an energy efficient network similar to our circulatory system, the circuits of neurons in our brains, and the distribution of nutrients in plants. Many dendritic photos also capture delightful concave/convex optical illusions.” – Patrick Lysaght
