About

This sculptural wall piece constructed from pine wood is a part of Jessica Drenk's solo exhibition "Ad Infinitum" at Galleri Urbane, September 2015.

The existence of patterns in nature has inspired scientific theories and are evident constancies of forms found in the natural world. These designs repeat in diverse contexts and can be admired in crustaceans and insects’ exoskeletons, mammals’ skin and fur, leaves, rocks, wood, etc. According to the Pattern Formation Theory: “all patterns served a biological purpose such as sexual selection, camouflage, water flow, signaling, etc.” and Drenk’s fascination is to give them a new life. The artist's work is a synthesis between natural shapes and materials that have interested Drenk’s throughout her quest for inspiration. “I always want to push my materials to a place where they are still recognizable as “book”, “wire” or “wood”, but have taken on new forms beyond those original definitions. In working with materials I tend to forget what they are; seeing them instead as something malleable with potential to become a fascinating new shape.”
