I have been attempting a new series inspired by my COVID walks through back alleys and deserted park areas by creating a series of diptychs that are a dialogue between the natural (tree bark) and the unnatural (urban decay). I posted my first set here, under Something Different and my second set under Accidental Art from Dumpsters and Concrete Forms.
Dialogues between Natural & Unnatural Textures.
Scraggy bark with greenish lichen combined with graffiti on a wall.The first ones came together very quickly, but for this next set I am slowing down and wandering further afield into Asia, Europe and Mexico.
Abstract diptych. 1st half, a mouldy wall with yellow peeling paint, an interesting texture. 2nd half, a wall of a Bronze Age home at Tanum in Sweden, made up of alternating panels of both the orange inner bark and the white outside bark of the birch tree.
Abstract diptych. 1st half, another mouldy wall this one with yellow peeling paint. The 2nd half is a close-up of the Bronze Age home at Tanum in Sweden showing just the white exterior bark of the birch tree,where I have overlaid a panel of yellow to create a conversation.
I tried something different here – palm bark in Singapore overlaid with an abstract of a stack of paint trays.More of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Texture.
