On a trip to the rose garden

Floral Topographies or Islands in the Geometry of Rose

I made an afternoon in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens last fall while the roses were in full bloom.  This is one of a series of drawings exploring the composition of photographs exploring morphological differentiation between varieties.  The drawing, as they do, took on its own form, expanding into a topographical field.  The individual flowers act as seeds for expanding and converging curves, populating the page with islands.  Each region maintains a structure and resemblance to its original variety while adapting at the edges to merge with the neighboring domain.
