'My pieces are inspired by natural growth, urban architecture, technology, and music. They are a form of meditation for me; they allow me to think in a calm way while being creative. My work tries to illuminate the balance between the natural and manufactured. They aspire to blend the innate beauty of the organic with the scientific power of industry. I incorporate design patterns seen in different cultures throughout history such as Celtic jewelry, Islamic rugs, Modern architecture, and Ancient Greek pottery . I feel a passionate connection when I work with patterns; decoration somehow transcends distance, time, and beliefs. Patterns bring us together and let us connect with true universal intuition. However, I'm happy when other people see different motifs in my art. They have a Rorschach quality which illuminates the viewer's personality.' Chelsea Hrynick is based in Williamsburg, New York.
