This idea of hope is one that I’m dealing with in this work for the Turbine Hall.” (Abraham Cruzvillegas, 2015)

“In the early 20th century abstraction began to weave its way into illustration, particularly illustration produced for advertising. The simplicity and immediacy of abstract illustrations, and their bold inventive style began worked very effectively to deliver promotional messages to mass audiences, which responded well to an abstract aesthetic. Abstractly illustrated advertisements and announcements were distinctly effective at drawing a viewer’s attention and reinforcing their retention.” (Arday and profile, 2012)

Although photography and perhaps particularly microscopic photography, may help inform botanical work, there is certainly still a need for botanical illustration because it can represent clearly what may not easily be seen in a photograph.” (Botanic gardens conservation international, no date)
