Garden of Eden

Garden of Eden / 12” x 13” / Pencil on paper / 2008

This depiction of flowers adds complexity to an already complex arrangement. While admiring something so beautiful sometimes, my analytical mind wants to dissect it with the eyes, trying to simplify something that is so overwhelmingly beautiful. This thought is a metaphor for Eve's temptation that lead to her fall from grace, which in turn is a metaphor for Man's habit to constantly study, dissect and over think the world around him.
