Organic Forms

This body of work is heavily influenced by the images of German photographer, Karl Blossfeldt (1865-1932). This series began with an observation of Blossfeldt’s photographs of floral forms found in nature. As a compliment, I investigated mass-produced, fabric/plastic flower forms used for weddings and other celebrations. Ironically, this dichotomy of fine art photography and craft store objects initiated the design process. Making visual connections to images and objects which are diametrically opposed is a long-standing practice in studio art.  Seeking out the common thread in seemingly disjointed pairings, ultimately lead to creative discoveries.
