Visual Rhythms of Art and Nature
Visual images can have a powerful influence on our thoughts, mood and actions. Visual rhythms are an intertwining of the shared characteristics of art and nature that excite our visual and psychological responses to patterns, order, symmetry, structure, smell, taste and reminders of outdoor adventures. Photography brings the soothing, hypnotic visions of nature into our indoor environment and reenforces our stress relieving responses by visual reminders of trees, lakes, sunsets, plants, creatures of all sizes and outdoor adventures.
One of the very basic attributes of nature is the role that chaos and randomness play in nature’s evolution. Without external influence, chaos and randomness are the most stable states toward which nature will always proceed. In between the emergence of patterns and final degeneration into chaos, beauty prevails throughout nature as species adapt to their environment to sustain a thriving existence. Patterns in nature give a hint of underlying explanations of physical characteristics and functionality of specie components. You’d better pay attention to nature, because nature always wins in the long term.
Robert Cassanova’s photographic images are archivally processed silver gelatin black and white prints and archival pigmented ink prints on 100% rag paper and are framed in oak, reclaimed heart pine, walnut, cypress and metal. He is the author of the book, "Visual Rhythms of Art, Science and Religion" which is an exploration of how art, science and religion are ubiquitously linked by visual perception, the human psyche and the origins of nature.
