FLORA FROM ANOTHER TIME
It is estimated that there are around 391,000 species of vascular plants currently known to science, with about 2,000 new species being discovered or described every year*. It is daunting to think about all of the beauty we will never see in our time here on earth — in both existing and non-existing things.
Botanical Fiction is a series of studies that loosely explore otherworldly flora. Acrylic ink washes followed by freeform marker sketches demonstrate that there are endless possibilities, much like those in the world that surrounds us. We must remain curious and continue to explore and seek awareness beyond what lies in front of us.
Featured are a few studies from a series of 15. These studies may turn into a larger format and evolve. These studies will be on view at Hydraulic Hearth in Buffalo, New York from September 2018–November 2018 in Gallery 716 — their ‘phonebooth’ art space.
