These semi abstract works depict flowers and shrubbery in intense compositions to heighten the wild chaos and explore their random beauty. I work loosely from a personal collection of photographs, both from my travels abroad. My photos are impulsive, taken when a shape, color or composition strikes me. I’m drawn to arrangements of intensity and chaos. The camera allows me to capture an intimacy that drawing from life does not, sometimes a suffocating closeness, conveying the beauty in the overwhelm. Flowers and nature are so rich in beauty and subtext. The random spray of blooms, mirror life with its joyful chaos. In amongst the madness we have our good days, like aching blossoms fighting through the foliage.
