Lawn Pinwheels

pinwheels.jpg

These pinwheels are made by Paper Arboretum in Los Angeles, CA. Jerolyn Crute Sackman uses waterproof polyester paper making them suitable and durable for outdoors. She enjoys going for walks in her neighborhood. The bright floral colors and fresh smells draw me close to the gardens and the carefully landscaped foliage next to buildings. Like many people it brings back memories of childhood explorations of the foliage in my family's yard. I find the leaf of a simple bush to contain extraordinary beauty and complexity. When a plant catches my eye I take photos. In my studio I select the best images that suit the design I have in mind. Enlarging the images reveals the astonishing patterns of nature. For some plants and delicate butterflies I use stock photography. I like using natural patterns in this way that is reminiscent of kaleidoscopes and mandalas. The repetition creates mesmerizing patterns when spun on a pinwheel! Using paper as the main medium of expression is an extension from my background as a graphic designer, illustrator and fine artist. For my meticulousness of assembly I thank Art Center College of Design where I graduated.
