Primeval Forest

Primeval Forest by Karen Gadient, 2014

Primeval Forest. Something fun I did last week. Crafted from different photographs of local desert plants, then digitally painted and stylized into one piece to become an ancient―or alien, perhaps―landscape.

The whole secret of the study of nature lies in learning how to use one’s eyes.
― George Sand

Don’t worry, you can blink. Had to say that, given I’d just finished this artwork and ended up watching Doctor Who ["Blink"] that same night. Odd timing.

Angels. Yep, some of them are scary. I’ve done (not scary) art with them before. Well, I don’t suppose an angel in graffiti could come to life and getcha

Anything’s possible: so, don’t blink. ;)

I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free. — Michelangelo

Fractal Mind

Fractal Mind by Karen Gadient, 2014

Another one of those pieces I got lost in while creating. I’ve been getting more and more like Sherlock in his “mind palace”.

I got lost in it for a while.

It’s kind of a world in itself now, with a bunch of stories and little creatures hidden inside. Which is really what artists and writers and other creatives do: discover and map worlds. Nice to be back in that zone again.

In looking out upon the world, we forget that the world is looking at itself.
