Alongside the book Gemma has opened the Cornwall Morphology and Drawing Centre at CAST in Helston. In exchange for making some posters I will be attending some of her workshops which I am really looking forward to.
Among nature’s endless array of forms, functions and designs a series of repeating patterns and similarities have emerged over the eons. Over countless hours spent drawing natural specimens, artist Gemma Anderson has developed an elegant approach to classification based on these forms and symmetries. Isomorphology, as she has termed it, bridges the divide between art and science – offering a new way of looking at the natural world and the unconventional relationships between species. In this visual introduction, Anderson sets out her case with examples from the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms.
