And then it eats you

“Silent Encroachment’’ (acrylic on canvas), by Nancy Wood, in her show “Shaping Space, at Galatea Fine Art, Boston, May 1-June 2. The gallery says:    “This series is a visual experiment in stretching, expanding and compressing geometric and optical images. The resulting hypnotic, pulsing, floating patterns, founded in logic, crossover into the emotional realm and provide access to the subconscious. The act of multiplying, dividing, adding, subtracting, and repeating elements by eye and intuition result in a visual translation of an internal experience of the world. Geometry gives way to something more organic and infinite, similar to the evolutionary process in nature. There is an element of trial and error but an opportunity arises to adapt or change course, like nature in an effort for survival.’’
