Bak's Law Series: Finance and Physics
In this time of financial upheaval the artist has been studying entropy (chaos and randomness) theory as seen in markets, mathematics and physics. This series of paintings is the response to that ongoing study. Is it hubris to believe we can predict any outcome? At what point does a structure collapse? Where is the tipping point and can it be manipulated or forestalled? The vocabularies of finance and physics are idiosycratic and descriptive. Wyndham has used that vocabulary for her titles. Happily, for an artist, the battle between order and chaos can have an anarchic beauty.
