Rachael Wren visits the studio of painter William Holton.

Wren writes that "William aims to create situations in which processes that mirror those of the natural environment can occur in his paintings... The variety of paintings in William's studio, each addressing a different aspect of structure, size, or color, illustrate the multitude of nuanced permutations that can arise from these sorts of systems. Like a scientist altering the controls of an experiment, William works methodically through potential variations, demonstrating how the change of one small element can lead to divergent results."
