2011 | The BOTANICALS incorporate both natural and structural elements which help to organize and frame the imagery in this series of acrylic paintings. The paintings depict the natural – flowers and leaves, and the man-made linear constructed areas, thus creating a relationship between realism and that which is abstract.
Work done in a series allows me to begin with a concept and see how it evolves ... like a seed growing into a flower. For me, being in a garden brings great energy and delight as I see bursts of colors, shapes and textures, and the metamorphosis of a blooming bud. These paintings abstractly reference the “circle of life.”
