Aaron DeGruyter on BIFURCATION: "This series is a study on the synergy between life and death. I employ color to both divide and unify the opposing elements. Visually isolating the organs from the bone structures that protect them, I show both halves of the same whole. Life leads to death, which leads back to life. The symmetrical flower structures that frame the anatomy explore the complexities of life and death, but also symbolize the science and spirituality that hold them together. I want the viewer to focus on the details of the prints that marry the two ideas until they blur into one. Life and death are parts of a greater whole."
Limited edition, hand-pulled screen prints. Six color (VIII is seven color), embossed, and numbered, printed on Speckletone Madero Beach French Paper and signed by the artist.
Please note: Bifurcation I and II are sized 16 x 20". All others are sized 12 x 16".
