AMMONITE - 04 - Adaptable and flexible

This highlighted drawing of an Ammonite serves to illustrate the timeless flexibility and adaptability of creatures since life began on earth to change to their circumstances. The subject of the prevalence of these creatures and how they have reshaped and remoulded themselves for millions of years has fascinated Si spending a great deal of time with friends down on the Jurassic coast of Dorset.

from the series of works titled ‘Design by Nature’ and 
featured in the ‘Eye of the Beholder’ Exhibition 2024.

The seven lessons we could learn from the natural world
This work is taken from the series of seven artworks that take the natural ‘analogue’ detail of essential icons of the natural world and are highlighted and contrasted against underlying contemporary digital patterns, created by si homfray especially for this range, representative of our very modern digital lives.

The seven works:

1. Tireless and focussed

2. Resilient and rubbery

3. Resourceful and ingenious

4. Adaptable and flexible

5. Patient and stress free

6. Connected and communicating

7. Alive and kicking

'Eye of the Beholder is an artistic examination of the extraordinary fine detail and elegance that exists in the natural world contrasted with the finest contemporary digital patterns.'
