Deconstructed Nature Portraits, Vicki Rawlins

Chicago-based artist Vicki Rawlins constructs whimsical portraits of enigmatic, legendary women using flowers, greenery, sand and other organic objects. These unconventional works of art are captivating not only for their creativity but also for their ephemeral journey to creation and destruction. Rawlins has prints available of her works at http://sistergolden.com.

I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me, too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.
