Artist Statement

Whitney Wood Bailey

(Abbreviated Statement)

This work is driven by questions of a metaphysical nature such as how design and orchestration within nature affects our consciousness and how the extraordinary geometries within nature’s design demand the consideration of intelligent design as well as our notions of spirituality.  I am interested in the augmentation of naturally occurring systems through the application of manmade structures.  In my work, I combine forms that are organic in creation with carefully placed and predetermined mark making.  The linear hatch marks (“ticking”) in the work represent a form of structure, a repetitive and ritualistic system that has been applied to the naturally occurring elements within this painting process.  The combination of the two suggests the idea of an intersection of faith, reason, instinct and intellect.
