Swooping and diving through a field of dark blue-violet, the lightning-like luminescent forms in this artwork are reminiscent of a real-world electrical phenomenon known as a “sprite” that occurs high in our atmosphere.

However, these shapes come from a virtual mathematical world that I explore using the computer and custom software. Art and mathematics – the right brain and the left – are inextricably linked in this work, which depends on mathematics, yet simultaneously illuminates and unravels its beauty.
