Artist’s Statement

Douglas Stinson’s particular interest is in the surprising connection between our sense of the aesthetic and the universality of underlying physical laws. Other work explores the relationship between form, function and design and the discovery of hidden beauty in transitional forms. Some images draw on his experience in land use planning and environmental conservation.
