“Thicket of the Mind” (archival inkjet print), by TERRY GIPS, in his show at Galatea Fine Art, Boston, Feb. 4-28.
He says, in his gallery notes:
I have been making art about tangled complexities; the process is like playing a
game of chess between order and chaos, knowing and not knowing, remembering and
forgetting. I sometimes use grids to structure the chaos, wildness and randomness
found in nature. And I take notice of the parallels between these natural entanglements
and those of the mind and the brain and hope that perhaps through these images I
can catch a glimpse of the 500 trillion synapses, and the dendrites, axons, and
nodes in my brain and nervous system.
