Perfect World: Off Balance, DETAIL
Ink and acrylic on a map of the world
20 x 32 inches
This work took a full year to complete. It became more and more layered and detailed until finally thin flowering vines took over the entire planet. The heat, humidity and heavy rainfall of Southern Illinois encourages rapid growth in weeds and vegetation. Last summer a beautiful, but deadly, morning glory vine strangled my corn stalks in a matter of days.
