the beauty within
In this digital collage series it’s about depth, focus and layers of perception. And the beauty that lies within the eye of the beholder. Cut & paste is used to create an experience that is more than the sum of its parts, trying to create possibilities to lift the veils of illusion. It is also a tribute to our ancestral artists, who paved our way.
This foxglove (bot. digitalis) blossomed in my garden last summer. I watched its beauty changing over time. How it looks after the summer rain, when there is still a drop of water underneath a blossom. Can you spot it?
