Nature Pieces

These pieces came about through the evolution of various nature studies. They depict certain objects that have captured my interest again and again and that have a meaning and a history in my life. The ?Tree Series? arose from looking at the forms that intertwined branches made. It quickly became a more universal theme: nature up close, the idea of lines merging with one another creating a mesh that becomes the meat of the painting itself. The study became about the idea of similarities within a contrasted space: the similarity of colors or the opposition of line versus the flatness of the background.
