Inverted Dragons Blood

Michael Foster

2015    Size   H: 6.5 in  W: 6 in  D: 6 in  

In an Exhibition - To be entered into the Bridges art conference in Baltimore

A piece inspired by the fractal patterns seen in the branching of the rare Dragons Blood tree. This tree only grows on the island of Socotra in the Arabian Sea. I chose to invert the tree to show the fractal pattern of its incredible branching limbs. Red Maple, Acrylics, Chestnut Dyes, Waterlox, India Ink

Detail showing the bottom of the box

A picture showing the piece re-verted on a base. Not an intended way to display the piece, but a more conventional view of the tree as seen in nature.

A picture showing that the piece is a box and displaying the blood red color I chose as a nod to the color of the sap for which the tree was named.
