This work is a study of how nature and power rhyme. It is an exploration of candy-colored sensual puzzles printed on metallic paper on the back side of clear plexiglas. Viewers are drawn in closer to feel comforted yet disturbed, to wonder if it is science fiction or science illustration, mythology or an updated version of Titian’s master paintings. Tensions are created with hints of sensuality but paused at the detachment.
This work is digital. I use fractal software, flame painter and amber light software, painting software and digital photography. The patterns are built using transparent fractal layers to build the environment and to wrap around the figure. The skin is my canvas and the viewer determines if these pieces are photographs of tattoos, painted figures or something other-worldly.
