I took some images of some tall grass that was growing wild in Central Park and this random shot is my favorite. I was first drawn to the idea of this as a subject on seeing this, which reminded me Albrecht Durer's The Great Piece of Turf. This more abstract image above, which reminds me of Gerard Richters scraped Abstract paintings captures the sense of what I saw - lush, verdant green. Originally called Abstract, he renamed the series Wald or woodland suggesting something nature based. Interestingly in a recent NYTimes article something that people have done for centuries - walking barefoot in grass is something we should now apparently be afraid of.
