Lively

Whenever the time, wherever I am, whichever art means chosen, I am always drawn to art which derives from biological shapes.

The reason is simple: life takes soft and cohesive forms, for the most part. The subtlety of biology is always present in the harmony of even the strangest looking beasts.

Take the work of Russian artist Naum Gabo.

The mellow shapes of jelly fish and marine animals are reflected upon the subtle shapes and dazzling forms of his sculptures.

Just like transparent medusae, his art work lets light in and out creating the most diverse perspectives for the eye of the excited beholder.
