The Other Side of Paradise: 2013, Watercolor & archival digital print on paper and framing Plexiglas,
31" x 44"
The stalks and blossoming pods of Strelizia reganie, commonly known as Bird of Paradise,
were painted in watercolor and a photo of the leaves and ground was printed onto the painting. Often ignored is the plant’s understory in which the richness of crawling creatures and decay exist, essential to the organisms well being. These are depicted on the framing Plexiglas.
