Sunflower Burst: Flash – Sacred Geometry

 

The first gif of a set made from my piece “Purple Sunflower Burst”. The piece used to make this gif was originally 30” by 30” ink and acrylic on a painting panel. This piece is inspired by the arrangement of seeds on the head of a sunflower and closely approximates the golden ratio. This ratio enables the sunflower to pack a lot of seeds into one head! Many other plants use this ratio to ensure that each leaf gets the maximum amount of sunlight. Phyllotaxis is a study that documents the many patterns related to plants and their growth.
