Phyllotaxis and Parastichy...

Mercury 20 Gallery/Oakland a Time of Love and War. Johanna Poethig paints surreal gardens that overlay mathematically generated,organically drawn computer models of plant algorithms mixing realism and abstraction. The story of love and war imagines a world populated by futurist plant people tangling with misshapen primordia in the toxic sludge of human de-evolution using phyllotaxis and parastichy masks as subversive algorithmic shields.
