My goal was to explore the concept of embracing connectedness through the common visual language found in nature. My painting “Intertwined” depicts two carrots interlocked as they grew together. Although they may appear different in some ways, they share a common ground. The two stems of the carrots grew above the ground separately, and they did not appear to be connected until they were harvested. It was only then that you could see that below the surface they had intertwined. By embracing one another, they were able to shape and form the other as they grew. In turn, it is only when we look deeper and below the surface that we can truly embrace the connections we all share and appreciate being connected to others as we grow.
