About the Artists:
An artist and mathematician with interests that span the philosophical arts. His works are process based (like fractals) and explore the nonlinear and transdimensional aspects of reality.
“These works explore static-dynamic relationships and exist at the ‘boundary’ of continuous-discrete interfaces.
Out of this complementariness lies the seeds of identity... I and Thou.”
Jaya Mangalam Gibson
Jaya was raised in the Scottish highlands, schooled in London, the USA and India. He cut his teeth as designer in the global film industry but soon came to realise working for himself was for more enjoyable and creative. Jaya has several art and creative related projects keeping him busy day to day.
My inspirations and subject matters are very diverse. Some are purely aesthetic, many are political commentary and the rest are experimental, self-indulgent explorations into technique and soul searching.
Nicholas explores anomalies during visual representation of digital graphics and imagery.
"Fractals are everywhere in nature. Patterns recurring in different scales. I try to emulate that in the digital realm."
“The visual representations of these works are generated through using digitally processed imagery. My work challenges and explores the perceptions of time as a measure of the numerical order of change with in fractal models, within the practice of Zen.
Fractals are a kind of well defined forms with a certain structure. It is a part of geometry which tries to describe irregular and fragmented forms or figures like clouds, valleys or coastlines.”
The works are influenced by the unique aesthetic of Zen, which includes a great appreciation for moderation, asymmetry, imperfection, rusticity, and naturalness.
