I am fascinated by the shapes of pineapples. The overall shape of the fruit, the close-up shapes of the parts and the shapes once they are digitally altered.
I have some ideas for some textile pieces, so I tried some pencil sketch alterations of leaves.
I don't make pictorial works, so these shapes will need to be simplified again, abstracted.
The skin looks luscious here. Not hard and spiky, but with swollen edges.
With a neon effect, the skin has been converted to look like microbes under a telescope.
I'm still playing and wondering how far this will take me...
