All Nature Faithfully

Turning Over A New Leaf

A return to digital manipulation. This is based on a mono print from a leaf scanned and digitally layered. The notion of the infinite in Nature continues as a theme. It is interesting how the tree motif emerges from the leaf veins almost of its own volition.
I have always loved this Nietzsche quote as phrased by Gombrich in “The Story of Art”

“All nature faithfully”–But by what feint
Can Nature be subdued to (the artist’s) constraint?
Her smallest fragment is still infinite!
And so he paints but what he likes in it.
What does he like? He likes, what he can paint!

A new tag for what may become a series of visual thoughts about bounding the unboundable.
