Lynn Millette




Paint describes the way I see but I don't know everything about what I see. I don't see entropy, multiple dimensions or the invisible world that our
intelligence cannot quite formulate. We know very little about the mind. That inspires me to have full consciousness of the world that I live in.
The more I paint, the clearer it is to me. Like the rest of nature I am part of all of this. I produce something and as I am in the process it is recursive.

Recursiveness is very low on an evolutionary scale of systems, simply a series of discrete steps running any procedure over and over again. Theonly
innovation that we find in nature is the vector of time. Time is mirrored through art. Our curiosity and desire for knowledge becomes the culture of a
moment. The making of my paintings is reflective of the way the world is now from my perception. What I see in art is that it reveals to us something
about ourselves that would otherwise remain unknown.
