The patterns that Siena regularly uses (ranging from interlocking "combs" to continuous lines and self-replicating, fractal-based images) echo this process of internalized organic growth, in that each work acts as an isolated system, whose proliferation is contained only by the limits of its support--the edges of the panel.
