"Creativity is a lot like looking at the world through a kaleidoscope. You look at a set of elements, the same ones everyone else sees, but then reassemble those floating bits and pieces into an enticing new possibility."
~ Rosabeth Moss Kanter
Kaleidoscopes make me think of the past; a time when nothing was perfect, but everything was possible. A time when escape could be found in a 99 cent cylinder from the local Woolworth's store.
Kaleidoscopes are imagination, mystery, and wonder -- an accessible stream of endless possibilities.
Kaleidoscopes are magic! At least, I thought they were, until I was five or six years old. ;-)
They still have their own kind of magic -- patterns, shapes, and colors, forming an intriguing 'other' -- which is why I enjoy exploring them through my art. I've created kaleidoscopic art for many years; first, with paper, scissors and glue, then, and now, through the medium of digital art.
I like my current process better . . . more gratifying output, less frustrating clean-up. ;-)
With this new collection, I've taken my kaleidoscopic images to a different plane; a plane of pure whimsy, where everything is colorful, bold, complex, and lush. Symmetry, order, and elegance are joyful co-conspirators in these twenty pieces.
These vibrant images create a stunning focal point -- whether displayed singly or in groups -- and are equally at home in contemporary or traditional spaces.
Fine art prints from The Natural Attributes Collection are available through my online galleries at Fine Art America. They can be purchased in a variety of sizes, fine finishes, and optional framing choices. Click here to see the entire collection.
