Magenta Resting on a Branch
Being a photographer and an artist, I can have a vision of what I want to create. But so many times my creation creates itself. I’m like a sculpture who wants to carve an eagle in a piece of wood but it wants to be a tiger. The outcome is what I, the artist, gives into so my piece truly speaks to me before I’m ever done. With this in mind, I created Magenta, my dragonfly. I used my photographs of a pink tulip, a violet iris, and a pink hydrangea. Not out of stone, clay or paint but using fractals is how I constructed my dragonfly. Dragonflies are a colorful insect and their characteristics are as unique as my own. MAGENTA RESTING ON A BRANCH is part of a trio of Magenta: MAGENTA DERRIERE IN THE AIR and MAGENTA FLYING.
