i’m jealous of catherine ulitsky

I loved these pieces, by American artist Catherine Ulitsky, when I thought they were just geometric gouache paintings on photographic skies… and then I looked a little closer and realized that the tiny black dots connecting all of the candy-hued lines were huge flocks of starlings in flight. Now I really love them.

    The mix of natural and geometric/mathematical shapes is what makes these pieces so amazing. Love it!
