Ana Maria Gower: Transfusion #0(Print)
12" x 16" Print
In order to better understand the directional property of lines, I turned to nature. For years, I was fascinated by branches of trees, especially their look against the evening sky, when details are blurred, but shape and vector remains. Branches always have a clear direction, looking at it we can see the whole path the tree has gone. In fact, tree branch at each moment combines the past and present. We can extend this path to the future.
"The most effective representation of the ideas of life’s path and potential can be found in a simple tree branch. In the process of development, it selects a path out of multitude and each choice contains new alternatives. I started noticing branching structures all around me. A very straightforward observation, that became the impetus behind the “Transfusion” series, was focused on the fact that everything – from a body to a culture – contains such branching structures, both literally and symbolically. To me it was an evidence of a transfused potential, that seems to be the foundational quality of our reality." - Ana Maria Gower
