Went on a leaf hunt this morning for inspirations for new drawings. One of my favorite finds this morning is this foliage from a wild streetside parkway; almost like snowflake shapes from the top view.
The next series in development features abstracted botanical shapes in interaction with elements from the built environment. This is a continuation of my exploration of beauty and information. I am endlessly captivated by the information-rich natural world: a perfect balance of repetition and variation. The built environment has a completely different rhythm. The strong graphic lines in the built environment are functional, conveying information about strength, stability and movement. Living in urban settings requires a new way of connecting with beauty at the intersection points of the natural and built worlds.
