Title: 1234axioms.net (Waves) Artist: Adrian P. Patience Media: Ink, Pencil Crayons, Watercolour Paints on Paper, Moderate Computer Editing Year: 2011

Rationale: When I was by the shore of Lake Ontario the other day I threw a few stones into the water. This was something that I used to do as a kid, and it seems that it’s something that I still can’t resist doing as an adult. I’ve always been fascinated by the ripple effect/diffusion that occurs as the waves radiate out from the initial splash as the stones hit the water. I always thought that the patterns that emerge were aesthetically beautiful. As an adult I have more knowledge about waves and the science behind them. Having more knowledge about waves conjures up various thoughts in my mind regarding how waves affect all people in contemporary society on a quotidian basis. Waves are suffused throughout all of our modern technology/life: cell phones, telephones, computers, radio, wifi, microwave ovens, music, even hearing/vision (innate ability), etc… all rely heavily on waves oscillating at different frequencies. I find it remarkable that humans have devised methods and technologies for measuring, creating, and controlling waves. These thoughts and the childhood memories concerning the beauty of waves is what inspired me to create this artwork.

I believe that once an artwork is finished it stands on its own; the piece exists adjunct and distant from its creator. As more people view and reinterpret the artwork for themselves the subsequent distance between the work and the artist increases. With that being said…this piece can–obviously–be interpreted in many ways. I won’t influence you any further on how to view/read it. I will leave it up to you–the viewer–to decide for yourselves how you want to rationalise/elucidate this piece. I hope that you like and enjoy this artwork. ☺
