an open space in a forest, cleared for a purpose, obstructions removed, space to breathe, escape from the overgrown or from clutter, the clearing of the mind, the act of liberation.
In this image the background is divided into two visual surfaces. The first is a solid expanse of bold flat colour. The pale pink in the second area is ambiguous in it's depth. The blending of bright colours offers hope. These little shapes and patterns dance across the surface of the image. The linear strands hold back areas and guide the eye whilst the leaf shapes flutter across the image, catching and clinging to anything they may touch.
