Port Alberni, British Columbia, Canada
Lynn Kenneth Pecknold is an art educator by trade, but a storyteller by profession. It is his visuals, rather than verses, that rouse and run off the page. Influenced by the evolving tessellations of M.C. Escher, Pecknold creates mystifying and mesmerizing symmetries both painterly and puzzling. His most recent work deals in digital realms. Using software he designed, Pecknold applies the principles of reflection and replication to drawings, paintings and photographs. "He explores the shapes and symbols that exist in everything from found objects to natural elements like driftwood. He is obsessed with the geometry of mirrored and fractal shapes and his pieces reveal unexpected new figures when these duplicate and opposite reflections take form.
