Botanicus Exhibition – in celebration of Earth Day

“Botanicus” Republic Plaza, Denver thru May 18, 2011

Botanicus is an exhibition celebrating the beauty of the natural world. This has long been an inspiration in my own work. For this exhibition I created three 18 inch by 11 foot works entitled “Clouds of Blossoms”. I used encaustic on mulberry paper as my medium to create a translucent, ethereal effect. As the light changes throughout the day the colors change as well, imitating nature in it’s operation. In my work I try to embody the simplicity and empathy of haiku and for these pieces I thought haiku would be an interesting starting point. This is the haiku that inspired “Clouds of Blossoms”

the blossoms have fallen;
our minds are now

Koyu – Ni (translated from Japanese)
