Newark Arts Alliance Members Show

Last night I attended the reception for the Newark Arts Alliance’s Member Show, for I had entered my graphite and gold leaf rendition of 2 Octopus.  I titled it “Entwined”.

I am both fascinated and amazed by the natural world around me. Because of this, I gravitate to creating representations of nature. Sometimes it is an honest botanical drawing, where other times it will be an abstract inspired by a microscope slide of the structure of cells. I feel there is no end to the availability of inspiration around me. I try to look at the world with wonder and curiosity, and it is with this sense of awe and discovery I create my works. This piece in particular I created because I am fascinated by octopus. They are such intelligent creatures, and their world is so radically different from our own – but is physically just steps away.
