Ferns are some of the oldest living plants on earth. The background for this piece — gesso covered with powdered pigments — turned out really nicely. The color of the background inspired my choice of ferns as subject matter. The ferns led me to the dinosaur stencils which inspired the Martian figure which represents the alienation of man from nature as well as the profound difference between the species depicted and perhaps also the possibility (inevitability?) of human/alien contact.
