Inspired by the new crop of pictures from the area around the defunct Fukushima power plant, I decided to make a piece involving a post human environment.
It began with a bunch of rulered lines on silk, and as I filled in the spaces, I tried to evoke the moist wildness of nature taking over concrete.
I used several kinds of soft, liquid media to get subtle color variations and patterns to contrast with the hard angles.
I made sure to include rusty browns to further the illusion of vegetation over metal.
