Heliconia In Bamboo
Original Oil on Canvas,  60" x 36"
Artist Notes:
"Since my creative process is stimulated by the architecture of the botanical, this captivating flower inspired Heliconia in Bamboo. To
emphasize the plant's mysterious and seductive nature, I brushed layer after layer of vibrant crimson glaze on to the surface of the canvas.  
Like skin draped onto a living framework of support, the rhythmic exterior geometry's of this majestic bloom are revealed in the minimal
light. Early morning in the Tropics? Or perhaps, the day's last sunlight amid a thicket of bamboo. With transparent veils of light and
seductive color, I animated the painting's surfaces always seeking to implicate the greater mystery of nature…that which lies just below
the surface."
