Anatomy of a Flower A to Z

Anatomy of a Flower A to Z

Hundreds of images on glass slides form a study the structure and lines of a plant that one can only see when the flower has actually died off. Similarly, I have looked at other local landscapes that are considered marginal or contested. In 2008 I became an artist in residence of the Solvay Waste Beds – 1400 acres of contaminated and sterile soil along the shores of Onondaga Lake – a declared Superfund site. And in Sugar, I painted miniature landscapes of a working sugar plantation in La Romnana, Dominican Republic.

All of the Anatomy of a Flower images, unless otherwise noted, are oil paint on recycled photography glass, 6" x 12"
