MARY KATRANTZOU | SPRING'12

Mary Katrantzou spent every night this summer swimming in pixels, the infinitely fluid medium of computer-generated color she used “to paint” her swirling worlds of print. During her long nights in front of the screen, she encountered the crushed-car sculptures of the American artist John Chamberlain, looked at tin-can labels, hovered over pictures of tropical fish, and found fields of daisies and tulips online. “I couldn’t do trompe l’oeil again,” she said. “So I was thinking—what would it be like if I mixed something metallic with florals? I’ve never touched the natural world before.”  - Sarah Mower, Vogue.com
