Artwork Description

Photograph on paper

Signed on the front.

Things that are a little harder to look at in my own life have an unashamed grace in the natural surrounds. The skeleton of leaves holds my fascination, as each one is different. The beauty that can be found in stages of decay is an ode to the life/death cycle for me. Perhaps I am looking closely at nature in order to find more about myself as another living organism. It is in these macro studies that I am able to embrace the poetry of life slipping away.
