Looking Up


For this piece I preformed a series of walks in which I focused primarily on "looking up"
I observed the translucent layering of colors and patterns created by different trees.
My response was to hand draw multiple repeats based on different species of trees.
The colors and patterns are representational of those I observed
The drawings were scanned, digitally colored, and layered.
The large compositions were printed digitally on rayon which is made from tree fibers.
The two pieces of cloth were installed above heads.
To encourage the viewer to "look up"
