This dissertation is presented as an introduction to the theme contained in my present works: The infinite order of chaos. This written work represents my momentary conceptual realization of the theme. I am certain that this realization would continue to evolve into the future., however this paper mutually can only present my current belief and conclusions. There were many times of uncertainty in trying to produce work which would relate to the correspondence between chaos, nature, and mankind. Directly or indirectly. In the journey through the painting process there was both discovery and rediscovery in the forms of technique and visual understanding. Research into fractal geometry, chaos theory, the efforts of preceding artists and by my personal experiences that have formed my ongoing interests in the reinterpretation of nature. By exploring each area, I have been able to see a clearer understanding of what "To Infinity" means to my series of paintings in the visual section of my thesis.
