Artist Michael McGuire

Artist Michael McGuire has drawn inspiration from plants for years, but something he saw this past winter changed his approach in rendering them. He observed that the reductive quality of winter storms simplified the contours of leafless plant life while emphasizing the chaotic and complex systems of nature. He photographed vegetation and trees after snowstorms and used them as a starting point for a series of works consisting of tight crosshatching on paper.
