Inspired by nature surrounding her home, Raywood chose images taken over the past four years. Some for the vibrant colors and others to capture the moment. By arranging these photographs symmetrically, order is added to the organic. The viewer is drawn to the pattern then pulled deeper into the piece to explore textures and paths, resulting in a transendent experience.
