I love drawing ornamental composition because it has the ability to condense an entire universe within a drawing. It is marvelous when I can translate the world of a client in an illustration.
A magnified nature.
My love for symmetrical illustrations, especially those with botanic elements, is something I've cherished for many years. I'm particularly drawn to ornamental compositions that bring together nature and art in a harmonious way. It's a style of art that I find incredibly captivating and I never tire of admiring the intricate details and unique shapes of these works. To me, these ornamental compositions are a representation of beauty and creativity. It must be my love for May Morris work and the Art & Craft movement. The movement, the balance, the curves of these intricate illustrations fascinate me. The harmony of these symmetrical compositions are a magnification of nature and quite unnatural. In my point of view, it is helping us to cope with life by creating a controlled environment. Just like real gardens. These compositions of botanic can take us back to nature, immersing us in a world of beauty and wonder. From lush fields of vibrant wildflowers to tranquil forests of towering trees, symmetrical illustrations of botanic scenes can inspire feelings of love and appreciation for all of nature's beauty.
Frames, geometrical compositions, all these are quite the same thing after all. They are a recurrent subject in my practice. I love the structure they bring. It is almost like they are reassuring me, allowing me to create within them. Plus, they very well go with botanical elements ! One is good, two or three is even better. The more the better to be honest. Well, you know me by now, I'm quite a maximalist ^^
