Bloom is a piece of work inspired on the photosynthesis of planktons and the journey these species undergo in fresh and sea water around the world. I was very intrigued to find this natural phenomenon and see the similarities between it and my style of work. When present in water, the reproduction of planktons leaves a colorful trail in the surface, resembling the shapes conveyed in these pieces. My approach is very intuitive; through the use of washed acrylics aligned around earthy colors, I create space-contained systems driven by shapes, layers, patterns and textures to represent the algae bloom.
