Roots.

amorecolore

Acrylic and gouache on canvas,  24″ X 48″. 

This quadryptic was made in approximately 3 weeks. I was spending a great deal of time in the woods. While I was there I was totally overwhelmed by the paradoxical beauty of all the Strangler Figs around. The idea of the symbiotic relationships that practically all living things seem to share. But rather than reproducing images of the forest itself,  I wanted to recreate what I felt; the sheer joy of liveliness that I found there!
