Simple compositions of plants and stone
It suddenly dawned on me after looking at this particular composition again recently that it is another example of being influenced subconsciously by the Brazilian master landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx. While he wouldn't have been working with these same plants in combination,(not culturally appropriate for tropical climates), the sense of flowing masses of contrasting foliage colors and textures in conjunction with stone are very much a tribute to his genius. Does anyone else see this? I think it really only came to me after I saw this linked on a graphic designer's flickr favorites along with art that reminded me of Burle Marx's own art, or looking down on one of his roof top gardens in Rio de Janeiro.
Here is a link that might be useful: Burle Marx influenced?
