This piece shares the same 8-fold framework as the original Infinity Bloom 8. The difference is that the angles of the star motifs are much wider. In the parlance of Islamic design, this makes them part of the “median” family of patterns, rather than the “acute” pattern of the earlier works. This one change leads to a drastically different overall effect.
Rather than the color gradient scheme I typically employ, in this piece I opted for a palette much more reminiscent of traditional Moroccan tile work. This makes it one of my most bright and festive pieces to date.
What people say:
It hangs above the crib of my small child. I like that it gives the kiddo something fun and interesting to study instead of squawking when she should actually be napping. But I especially love an aspect that I am sure Phil never intended, which are the rows of heart shapes that dance around the regular polygons. My heart. My beloved, unexpected, joyous little child. And this beautiful piece of art that I get to share with her.
