DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Framed, Oil and powder on canvas

ARTIST STATEMENT: The work of Thaddeus Beal opens a doorway into an abstract world where time dissolves in a pale, distant light. As the work seeks to confront what Islam would call the Wests fear of infinity, as the persistent narratives of the Newtonian world fade away. Huge patterns predominate, replicate and self-adjust. Occasionally, when symmetries and dynamics interact, new energy is created. Scientists might call the place where these phenomena gather the edge of chaos.
