Florescence is a continuation of my previous works (A Little Joie de Vivre Goes A Long Way - 2009 ) inspired by botany, printing and by images of the vital organs found in medical textbooks: the heart, lungs, kidneys and liver. These images are interpreted, repeated, mirrored and organized in a kaleidoscopic way but never rendered the same. Each panel combines in pencil drawings of plant parts with allusion to systems in the human body. Sinuous and nerve-like lines, delicate floral and repeating motifs either flatten the image or give an illusion of depth of space while connecting each panel.
