2019 / Fine Art
In Spartana’s series “Human-Nature Intertwined” he creates fanciful landscapes by combining the human form with multiple natural scapes. The interplay of black & white forms overlaid with details of flowers take on the function of strata. His work has expanded the use of natural elements to include scenes of nature during times of growth and decay and even using the textures from rock. The textures from flowers, rock and the human form create organic shapes and forms drawing the viewer into Spartana’s world. The shapes and texures form tenuous bond between the organic and the inorganic.
