|Grove K Howell 2012 Acrylic on Board 40cm x 61cm|
This piece is not dissimilar to a polarised light micrograph of human skin with hair follicles. (See here at the Science Photo Library, credited to Dr Keith Wheeler.)
The landscape we live in gets under our skin - but maybe it was always there? Do we recognise design similarities on some level?
I'm working on another tree portrait now and a winter take on a nearby grove that are both much darker, so this was an interesting sidestep in anticipation of spring, and the world refreshed.
