ZONE OF INTIMACY FEATURING THE WORK OF DOUG McLARTY WWW.SIGNATUREFOCUS.COM + DOUG@SIGNATUREFOCUS.COM My botanical art creates a dramatically heightened "zone of intimacy" with nature. Putting form to the idea that small is huge and that tiny is vast – all to help the viewer see things more intimately. I approach most images as art with a sense of play. This notion is coupled with a spare design imperative to keep it simple for the viewer to appreciate while creating some surprising visual metaphors along the way. PORTFOLIO MAGAZINE 109
