Sequence – Drawings

10

To practice my own drawing techniques i need to copy, by eye (and/or measurements), other drawings so my hands and eyes can learn the flowing curves of drawing sculpture. I chose these drawings to copy because i knew they were relevant to my future practice; i was attracted to the complexity of the structure, knowing that somehow these drawings are representations of nature.

These drawings are my copies of Richard Deacons own drawings:

Geometry is most often regular and symmetrical; this bouquet of flowers are all made up of the same flower therefore the pattern representing this geometrically would be perfectly symmetrical. But, why? Why should they be regular when nature itself has made them so irregularly beautiful? The pattern of each individual tulip would be the same. But why? Clearly they are all different.

Pretty soon, I learnt to look at nature to interpret it, here is my interpretations of these flowers, first they are unnaturally regular, then is the proper representation of a bouquet: star-sculpture1015
star-sculpture1016

This is perhaps going against the very rules of geometry and the Natural order, but I have my own interpretations which I believe to be geometrically accurate representations of a bouquet of flowers.
