Inspired by the narratives of scientific discovery and innovation, that that increasingly dominate contemporary culture, Rogan Brown’s work is “is an attempt by a non-scientist, an outsider, to visualize, comprehend and assimilate these new ideas and new ways of seeing the world, whether it involves our changing perception of bacteria or the paradigm shifts in our comprehension of the physical world that emerge from quantum physics.”, as he explains on his website. His works present several layers of paper cut in an extremely meticulous way, some of which are colored. To him, paper “embodies the paradoxical qualities that we see in nature: its fragility and durability, its strength and delicacy; there is a pleasing poetic symmetry in taking this material that was cut from the forest and by cutting and transforming it once again returning it to its origins”.
