Pattern Rambles – Its in the Plants

“There are only patterns, patterns on top of patterns, patterns that affect other patterns. Patterns hidden by patterns. Patterns within patterns.”

― Chuck PalahniukSurvivor

Patterns surround us everywhere. In our thoughts, behaviours, how we act and of course, phsically they surround us. In plantlife these patterns are intricate and vital to our lives.

As I go on my camera walks with Coco ambling beside me, I like to take these little snapshots and in the future I hope to link more specifically these patterns into my artworks and create their stories for every picture tells a story. 

Here in Andalucía, cacti are everywhere, enjoying the long, hot summers. I love the geometric shape of this particular cactus, precision in every leaf. Also the pastel pinky ed shade of the leaf are calming.
Here I love the play of light and dark in this photo. The natural lines of the plant slicing and cutting to make patterns.
The lines of leaves amaze me, like the capillaries on a human hand, the veins of life
