Geometric Patterns Layered Over Natural Landscapes

Artist Dayna Thacker is interested in the extreme interconnection of everything that exists in our world. From the very large to the infinitely small, she believes that everything ties together in a balanced system of existence. Her exploration of these relationships is evident in her collage project, entitled Theories of Everything.

Using elements of geometry, symmetry, and repetition, Thacker creates a visual language featuring simple and elegant compositions that are layered together with hand-cut lines and shapes. In each piece, the colors and textures blend together in balanced and intertwined landscapes. Thacker says, “As I create these pieces, I am comforted by the harmonious patterns. I can attempt to align myself with pathways of endless creativity and regeneration,” and through the work, she says, “The temporary event of our existence is put into perspective by the contemplation of the sacred and perpetual nature of reality.”

If you are interested in this project, you can check out Thacker's exhibit at the Barbara Archer Gallery, currently on display through May 4, 2013.
