Fern Forest

Deborah Perlman
This collage of photos from Fern Forest in Coconut Creek, FL, reflects the sensory overload of the many species I encountered during my visit. I printed the photos onto drawing paper, then cut them into sections and mounted them, with some pieces elevated to interpret the dynamics of the space, creating a bas-relief effect. After mounting, I drew into the piece with colored pencil, graphite, and charcoal, to emphasize shape, form, and shadow.
Try it!
