During 2011 I am posting images of things from the natural world that inspire or inform my art. My installations and sculptures are viewable at www.ryksenn.com.

August 4, 2010 Wraps
Opening up a fava bean for the first time, I was struck by it's wetsuit-like elements. Slitting it open was like slicing through neoprene to discover large, flat, pea-like forms. The seeds had their own tight fitting, rubber-like suits. The unwrapping process made me think about treasures hidden within art.
