The Seedling Nymph
India ink, gel ink, 400 series Bristol smooth paper, 17"x14", 2018, $4800
The Seedling Nymph is born within the seed. When she matures, she gives her life forces to the seed and it grows and turns into a plant. Just before pollination, the seedling nymph perishes. She is then reborn in the next generation of seeds and the life cycle continues.
My work encourages the viewer to become a scientist--to pay attention to details and its relationship with the work as a whole.
