John Ward transforms the ubiquitous leaf form into a vibrant and monumental study of colour and light. Fascinated by its biomorphic and infinite formations, Ward’s subject matter reflects a departure from Realism, which he calls, “entering nature.” His magnified perspective and energetic tonality elevates the minute details of the natural world to an otherworldly dimension. Like topographic maps or cosmic imagery, the leaf segment in Afternoon Light is both a totality and fragment, a universe and microcosm in one.
