Organic Beauty

While visiting Asheville, North Carolina during the Inspired Design conference I got the opportunity to visit the Blue Spiral 1 art gallery. If you are ever in Asheville I highly recommend you check out the enorumous gallery. One of the pieces I enjoyed was by Celia Gray. Her pieces are constructed using various materials and methods like encaustic, paper, and fabric on wood. Don't you love the hazy colors and organic shapes?

These are the sort of pieces I wish I could create - such great balance between complexity & layering, and simplicity & restraint. Beautiful.

Imagery like this really intrigues me. The subtle images, colors and layers... I could spend hours gazing at this type of artwork.
