Flower of Notre Dame

Archival pigment print, graphite, watercolor, acrylic, photography on canvas, 2016

This work, also part of my "Mechanical Botanical Series" is aptly named because the botanical forms, created from the digital manipulation of my original photography and scans, bring to mind the famous cathedral. The plant forms reach up into the sky, giving the image a spiritual quality. It illustrates how technology can be used as a vehicle for an emotional response.
