We have been undergoing some renovations here at FL4 to make the studio better organized and more pleasant to work in. We just acquired two beautiful Karl Blossfeldt prints to hang on the walls. I love Blossfeldt’s prints because they evoke so many visual parallels. This bold leaf immediately reminded me of Matisse’s cutouts.
