Macro Landscapes 2014
The first idea that I had for my graduate body of work was a series of "macro" landscapes which offered a bug's eye perspective of the world. The work would have focused primarily on the peculiarity of the textures of lichen, moss, fungus, bark, etc. Subject matter would extend to cover transitional stages of growth like budding, and would have shown some of the more magical, lesser seen aspects of this smaller, fractal world, like the refractive prisming of light, spherules of water, crystalline forms, and small insects.
This is an idea I will certainly revisit in the years to come. Below are a few small studies; essentially they are paint sketches.
