As Twere a Mirror to Nature


“As Twere a Mirror to Nature,” is a mirror polished lost wax process cast bronze plaque with the text “natura non facit saltum” embossed into the surface. The Latin phrase “natura non facit saltum” translates as ‘nature makes no leaps’ and is a pre-Darwinian concept for the methodology for evolution. In this case the artwork reflects a much more individual scale of time and change, as it reflects one’s aging identity and the contextual stuff of their lives.
