Order of Beauty

2017-2018

The Order of Beauty drawings reference the underlying geometry based structure of Islamic designs and patterns. The Order of Beauty drawings begin with the same matrix of interlaced circles laid out in Order of Beauty No. 1. This drawing is the basis of a pattern, if further developed, called the Breath of the Compassionate referring to teachings on “the Divine Breath” as the basis of all creation. The 24k gold patterns emerge from a hidden extensive network of drawn circles and lines. Rather than copying familiar Islamic patterns wholesale, I search the underlying circles for patterns that are intuitive and idiosyncratic exploiting the infinite nature and possibility of pattern itself. The drawings are a calming visual representation of the expansive universe.
