High in the hills and mountains of the Pacific Northwest’s coastal ranges reside the treasured Giant Sequoias (Sequoiadendron giganteum) – colossal creatures whose lives are measured in millenia. These conifers can reach upward an astonishing 85 meters (on average), live 4,000 years, and weigh in at a mind-bending 6,000 tons.
“Sequoias” is an impression of ancient majesty and natural beauty–a tribute to the uniqueness and solitude of these stunning lifeforms. In this work, a generative sky brightens the smokey, distant hills created generatively in an impressionistic style. Two or more Giants Sequoias sprout limbs like wings spreading out to take flight into the sky they reach toward. Created in a more illustrative style, the contrast is intended to make the subjects seem surreal in the presence of the ordinary. As an animated generative system, collectors can witness the curiosity of capriciously twisting branches and thoughtfully generated foliage as “Sequoias” builds the features of each tree. A constrained color palette showcases the features of the subject with complimentary variety to complete this wonderfully designed artwork.
