Botanix

I picked up a card from artist Milly Acharya and her botanix works when I was home a few weeks ago. Milly is based in Ithaca, NY and creates the most detailed and exsquisite botanical illustrations.

“I work exclusively with live specimens, investigating form, structure, texture and distinctive characteristics which determine the shape of my chronicle… I peek and probe and discover many a hidden secret concealed beneath the surface. The vascularity of leaves and petals, the units within a cluster are counted, mapped and numbered in order to understand structure, texture & source of color. I detect worlds within worlds and the journey within is always an adventure—entrancing, delightful, endlessly fascinating.”
