Inspiration

I’ve a lifelong obsession with the Geometry of the Cosmos, which exists from the microscopic to the way the planets, in our solar system, orbit Earth. If I’m asked about my views on this, my family groan in unison - I think I’ve mentioned it a tween-weeny bit to often. It’s a captivating topic that the ancients were aware of…Plato theorised about it…Cézanne considered it in his paintings…

Snowflakes are a fascinating example of a simultaneous mix of geometric simplicity & complexity - that is, they are all hexagonal but rarely the same ….& what we actually see, in their collective form, is irregular shaped snow…

If you cut plant life transversely, (fruit for example) often you’ll see those geometry-based shapes…I’ve sort of turned this idea on its head by forming mistletoe into a snowflake…

…or... it’s just a pretty christmas card design...
