Artist Statement

Dhyana Mukalere

I'm interested in the connection between visual art and maths. and how math is the underlining, foundational element to the fabric of nature. I have such a deep admiration for symmetry far beyond my conscious awareness of it, it just attracts my eye when I see it, in whatever form it appears to me in. With my background in pattern design, I created this illustration which I turned into a digital repeat pattern.
