Douglas Capron – ‘Hydrology’

Douglas Capron’s series ‘Hydrology’ – exploring “the concept of ‘Material Expressivity’ as advocated by Manuel DeLanda, which suggests a deliberate use of melody and rhythm in existing matter. This is a study of natural patterns, which occurs progressively as water transforms into ice during the prelude to winter. My intention was to express the ephemeral mystery of these impressions that were gradually morphing into solid ice on an urban park lake… The resulting formations are surprisingly dynamic, organically expressive and complex, and pose more questions than are revealed beyond an aesthetic perspective in our relationship with the most basic element that sustains us all.”
