I was so amazed with this Mike Wright Series: Geological masterpiece. At first, I thought that this was just an ordinary picture of a woman. When I looked at it much closer and for longer, I was astounded to see that there is something tricky about it; I was delighted to see some land forms in a map.
About the Mike Wright Series: Geological
I have learned that this artwork is made of pencil on a geological map of Colorado. This is in fact the first of a series of works to be exhibited exclusively at the Mike Wright Gallery in Denver, Colorado. The artist (Ed Fairburn) works with his art piece just like a sculptor – by cutting away needless detail in order to reveal the vital influences of form. Ed is attempting to show that we are actually microcosms of the cosmos. There are interrelationships of the patterns between the environment and the human being.
