FINE ART: Hung Out To Dry

January 21, 2012

I woke up to this tweet by the always-inspiring Upon A Fold. It’s such stunning work by Peter Gentenaar and particularly in the ornate setting of this church in Saint-Riquier, France. It reminds me of the little pencil drawing I did at the top of my blog of my drying and dying orchids. As they slowly lost all moisture, the petals became more transparent and their veined intricate capillary system was all the more apparent. It’s inspiring to see such large and yet delicate balletic work.
