Marion Borgelt: SILENT SYMPHONY

At a time of quotidian angst, this suite of work offers escape and lends perspective. Silent Symphony alludes to nature's exquisite designs by referencing fundamental archetypal patterns and forms. The artist’s selection of different materials considers how their innate properties are best elevated to result in expressions of orbital motions about time and change.

 

Scale becomes enigmatic in the works; they may be viewed as though through a microscope’s lens upon the minute, yet are simultaneously suggestive of vast eternal rhythms and infinite symmetries trapped in a volution. These works give prominence to the meticulously engineered natural world and reveal its omnipresent melodies that generally escape the naked eye. By intersecting the realms of physics, mathematics, design and rhythm inherent in nature, this exhibition underlines the elementary connections of all things.
