SHELL FUGUE, art print (detail shown)
What beautiful chaos in a joyous seascape. The jumble and symmetry of seashells stretches out like taffy along this abundant shoreline.
“Pattern is a language. Without a Rosetta Stone
its vocabulary is infinite, its grammar fluctuates.
A shell will write a sonnet to itself
just by the shapes and lines on its enameled face.
Shells of the same species will chatter among
themselves like spinster aunts in full gossip.”
(Excerpt from poem by Steven E. Counsell)
