Dusk – Guzmania lingulata

I recently did some digital reworking to the composition of this study of a dried bromeliad stem. The more I thought about it, the more it seemed to me that this stem, even in death, contained so much life, even seeming to spring upwards, perhaps towards a new state of existence. I reworked the background digitally to enhance the effect. Wateroolour, casein, acrylic, digital. 2012 (revised 2019) ©Kathryn Chormey
