Inspired student, inspiring assemblage

Student workI was delightfully surprised when a student brought this in to show me after lunch the other day. He had found the flower bud (camelia?) and leaves and carefully turned the latter into the former during his break. His explanation of his process was succinct but detailed; while the result is a simple but beautifully delicate and colourful composition – balanced, with a harmonious choice of colours, a range of textures and repeating forms that unify it into a whole new form.

It is worth noting that he was not instructed, either in HOW or that he SHOULD do this. It was purely his own initiative. Perhaps he was inspired by Andy Goldsworthy’s work and process, as well as our work creating assemblage from found natural objects. Certainly the result is inspiring!
