Borderlands #1

My Yoga Teacher, Richard Freeman, often says that the most interesting things happen not within an individual system, but where two systems interact and have to accomodate each other. I decided I wanted to explore this idea on canvas. What would happen if two patterns, in this case a black and white "tiling" and a stained glass pattern I'd designed years before, randomly occupied the same plane at the same time.

The eye generally sees one pattern as dominant, but which pattern dominates keeps switching back and forth. Sometimes, when you are lucky, you can mentally hold both patterns simultaneously.
