Experiment by Robyn Gordon
This morning I received a note to say Seed pod inspiration story was posted. Robyn had made contact re using images with various other artists working with this source of inspiration. So I am delighted to find my clan... or more precisely... to be included with this fine company in a wonderful Post. Thank you Robyn...there's so much to explore at this post and something fresh to bring to the Homage to the seed blog!
Wild dagga, Leonotis leonorus
Art Propelled is exciting to explore for many reasons - seeing what Robyn is working on is always a treat, but there are posts on books she loves, interiors, places she visits like this image above taken at the Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu. Her features of artists are broad-reaching and excellent and I find her African sensibility draws her to post things that have a particularly of the earth feel to them... ancient, dimensional, rich, but also various and unexpected at times.
Here's something from Dec 4 2008...

I'll finish with the last image on her seed pod story... from the Omo tribe, body paint and decorations. Photo by Hans Silvester.
