Inspiration for 'Random Order'. The inspiration for this work stemmed from my interest in combining elements of science, math and natural theology to produce art that is aesthetic and may stir our curiosity in the world around us. Elements of cellular automata, randomness and sacred geometry have been used in this artworks composition. These processes are considered to play some key roles in the natural world we see around us. Design of 'Random Order'. The brass hexagonal plane is sized on an underlying cellular grid, produced using basic sacred geometry. The presence or absence of a ring in a grid’s cell is determined by the use of a random number generator, as is the patina colour of the ring. Although they are all randomly placed, some rings are observed to form aggregate structures, reminiscent of simple multicellular organisms; some of the earliest forms of life exhibit this structural form. Order is thus born from randomness. A small hole is to be found at the centre of the composition. It leads to another plane, another dimension. Laying beyond the material façade of this world, it is beyond our reach and vision. It reminds us that there is more to this world than meets the eye. The use of 24 karat gold leaf is used to indicate the purity and value of this hidden realm. Making of 'Random Order'. The solid brass sheet and copper/brass rings have been variously coloured using several traditional hand applied acid patina techniques. Finished with a clear lacquer and mounted onto a plywood backer board. The artwork has two hanging points. It may be hung pointing vertical (as shown in the images) or can be hung pointing horizontal. Not intended for hanging outdoors. Internal use only. About 5kg.

As a boy I used to love spending hours drawing complex geometrical patterns with compasses; then colouring them in with pencils to make wonderfully complex, psychedelic pictures. I did not know it at the time, but I was using basic rules of sacred geometry to create mandala-type pictures. Years later, after completing my MSc, I spent 20 odd years in construction and architecture. I am fortunate to now work full-time as an artist. I work with both acrylic paints and metals to produce a range of paintings, metal wall sculpture, and custom copper interior design features. A feature of all of my metal artwork is that they are finished with hand-applied authentic & traditional acid patina finishes. Each and every patina has a distinctive character and personality. It is these subtle differences that ensure each piece is truly unique. Every patina finish is as individual as a person’s fingerprint. Everything is designed, handmade and finished by me. All my artwork is strongly guided by mathematical and geometrical proportions, especially those relating to circles (Plato’s ‘Perfect Form’) and the Fibonacci number series (AKA the Divine Proportion, the Golden Ratio, and the Sacred Cut). The broad underlying philosophy behind my art is exploring the apparent geometrical and harmonic relationships that appear to occur at all scales in the universe; from the quantum world to the cosmic scale, and probably into higher dimensions. All of creation appears to be determined and guided by the invisible pulse (Shiva’s drum). Plato succinctly surmised this concept, “God ever geometrises”.
