Money,  paper currency; a small experiment in finding patterns in randomness.

Decoding the National Lottery.  Is it possible to find patterns in number sequences from random lottery draws?  This series of works, Abstract Obsessiveness, explores this possibility by studying the lottery over a twelve month period.  Number concentrations are visually described in acrylic and oil on canvas which hover above currency and everyone’s desire to have more.

Is it possible to find a code, pattern, or sequence from something that is completely random?  Combine the two and what could be the product? Abstract obsessiveness.
