Brooklyn based Paul Wackers invents esoteric collections of plants, art, and objects for his large-scale paintings. Taking intimate and sometimes abstracted objects from everyday life and arranging them in alternating states of chaos and order, Paul suggests that there is no right way to have a “collection”. In his work, the unrecognizable seems weirdly familiar, and rooms that are devoid of human presence are anything but uninhabited.

Artist Chris Rodley used a deep learning algorithm to merge a book of dinosaurs with a book of flower paintings. The images were generated with an online service called DeepArt that lets you upload a “target” image and then apply a visual style to it. For step one he fed the network images of common dinosaurs and then applied the styles of 19th-century fruit engravings and botanical illustrations.

Allison Green was born in Philadelphia and grew up in a nearby rural suburb. Throughout her childhood Green lived on the periphery of a lush forest, an experience which has greatly impacted the art she is best known for today. Currently Green resides and works in downtown Jersey City, where she creates large-scale oil paintings intertwining themes from nature.

The works carry a feminist sentiment; Green names each tree after a woman who has influenced her identity, expressing the powerful relationships between women through the “venerable symbol of the family tree,” as she describes.

Posted from The Citrus Report

These are kind of cool. Colleen Jordan has created the Wearable Planter necklace, for people who want oxygen being made for them right under their nose all day long. Here is what Jordan says “Why should your plants stay at home? They help clean the air you breathe, are beautiful, and create a wonderful conversation starter. Carry a sprout, a succulent, or a flower you found on your morning walk.”

My friend Eric is crazy in a good way!!!!

Some times when people are a little crazy its hard to listen too, or take everything they say seriously. Eric had been talking about re-planting things in strange places. He will find a hole in the wall and take a vine from another wall and plant the vine in the hole.  Usually Im just like whatever Eric!

Anyway Eric was leaving town and I took him and his lady to one of my favorite spots on the water, as a kind of going away adventure.  This place is usually where homeless people sleep, but recently someone built a a rock garden there.  And it was in this place where Eric did his good bye planting, documented in these pictures.

Bye Eric !!!!!
