Goatsbeard: A Scrambled Side View

595.00

The fleeting beauty of natural processes is astounding. Goatsbeard (genus: Tragopogon) is a flowering plant from the sunflower family. During the seeding period, a puffball, similar to, but much larger than dandelions, is easily visible in the field. At one moment, it may be full of seeds, and in a gust of wind, they may all be gone, airborne. “Goatsbeard: A Scrambled Side View" is a response to experiencing this fleeting moment. When viewed directly from the front, this work appears all white, yet, once the viewer shifts to either side, a scrambled grid of green, Goatsbeard imagery is visible. This shift encourages us all to look more closely, so that we may deepen our perceptual awareness of the world.
