About Emergent Flow Art

Emergent Flow Art is fluid art, generally acrylics on canvas, guided by the concept of becoming, that all things are in a constant state of metamorphosis, continuously becoming something never experienced in the past and impossible to replicate in the future. In fluid art the artist establishes conditions to support becoming. She guides the medium toward an intended aesthetic, but does not ultimately control the process and outcome. Emergent Flow Art is a reflection of intention and stewardship of the environment, materials and mediums as they alchemize to preserve an image that represents a moment in time. Sometimes beauty quickly surfaces with little support; other times works emerge after iterative struggle with heat, moisture, gravity, density, pigment and composition. Emergent Flow starts with color and concept inspirations from nature. Then mediums are mixed and experiments with reactive processes and flow ensue creating initial small pieces. Scaling up comes with an unbounded commitment to enabling the mysteries of the moment to emerge. Each piece includes final embellishments and polishing to honor what has manifested and been preserved. Works are named based on the original inspiration or the feeling that the final expression of becoming evokes.
