APOSEMATICA (series)​​​​​​​ 
This​ ​series​ ​is​ ​the​ ​result​ ​of​ ​a​ ​philosophical​ ​investigation​ in which I explored the idea that ​one can go around to the other side​ of the work and see it as though in a mirror when painting on transparent substrate.​ This ​gave​ ​me​ ​an​ ​understanding​ ​of​ ​the idea of the dialectical​ ​consciousness​ ​and​ ​consequently an​ ​interest in​ ​the​ ​philosophy​ ​of​ ​becoming.​  ​​​​​​see a video here: https://myvanwygibson.com/whoistheartist
Some of these works​ ​are combined with​ ​printed panels​ ​of color that were created using​ ​sensing​ ​technology​ ​that​ ​converts​ colors taken from the environment ​into​ ​code​ ​for​ ​printing. https://myvanwygibson.com/machinestranslatenature
Aposematic is term coined for the concept of warning coloration in nature (apo - away sema - sign).​​​​​​​
