The perspective view of this piece, looking across the surface of a ‘constructed’ space age flower (yes, it’s a flower) towards the depths of space, makes for a rather unusual and unique image.

The flower ‘petals’ are formed from repetitive blocks of different sizes, trimmed at the petal edges to yield the proper flower shape. A large hole defines the center of the flower. The material looks like ceramic or china, and there’s a repeating circular pattern on the top face of each block, and reflected lights and shadows that play across the various semi-glossy surfaces.

The distant sharp outline of the petals is broken nicely by the galactic forms in the distance.The bright white mass and circular swirls give the art a nice dramatic focal point, and coupled with the darker mass a bit farther to the right, alleviate the sharpness of the petal edges and create some blended softer transitions.

If you look closely at the finished artwork you will see a small crosshatch effect. It’s more obvious in the depths of the shadows, and doesn’t show on your monitor. In no way does it detract from the art, and it is indeed intentional and softens the otherwise harder appearance.

I hope you enjoy this unusual artwork!
