I’ve stumbled into a new series of flower images. These images have in common the appearance of “artful randomness.”
They are supposed to seem casual and minimally arranged. But the fact is that I create these images from “the ground up” using both a scaffolding and an intermediate structural layer, so the appearance of randomness is just that—an appearance—and there is very little about these images that has been left to chance, whatever chance may be.
In art, I like to think, there are no accidents, only serendipity. To play fast and loose and improvise, first understand and master your craft!
