Genesis touches upon the creative process itself, the ideas being very much about newness and creation,” said Scott.

This piece transforms from fiery centers to fractal-like flames, interweaving in space, like glimpsing the birth of a star, in silence and awe, touching upon the joyful and mysterious.
