Inky blotches, abstract shapes and painterly mark-makings imitate the enthralling skins of sea creatures. These psychedelic patterns become exaggerated and hyperreal tjanks to an intense and saturated color palette, juxtaposed against lush darks for glow-in-the dark effect. Scales vary from micro to macro for a renewed approach to the perennial favorite pattern.
For the high-summer drop, tones are more saturated and juxtaposed with lush darks fro a dramatic mood. An expressive brushstroke offers flora and fauna an abstract quality, achieved with oil pastels and lashing of vivid gouache. Outlines are bold and brash, paired with dizzying geometrics for a hypnotic feel.
