THERE IS A JOY THAT CONFOUNDS AND A BEAUTY THAT EMBRACES – A Prayer Machine

 JAMES PATERSON, 2016

Mixed Media

Intangibles; fragments that knit us together, ambiguous, full of mystery.  They compose us, these many interconnected systems functioning in complex ways, yet linked together in ordered harmony making us more than the sum of our parts.

My Prayer Machines are like that; teeming with varied lines, forms and colours they weave together diverse elements that create a synergy; fearfully and wonderfully made.
