Neurological analogies


"Thicket of the Mind" (archival inkjet print), by TERRY GIPS, in his show at Galatea Fine Art, Boston, Feb. 4-28.

He says in his gallery notes:

I have been making art about tangled complexities; the process is like playing a game of chess between order and chaos, knowing and not knowing, remembering and forgetting.  I sometimes use grids to structure the chaos, wildness and randomness found in nature.  And I take notice of the parallels between these natural entanglements and those of the mind and the brain and hope that perhaps through these images I can catch a glimpse of the 500 trillion synapses, and the dendrites, axons, and nodes in my brain and nervous system.
