Eberhard Ross

I recently spied this artist's work in a magazine and loved its ethereal quality. The artist is Eberhard Ross, a German native who has worked on canvas, sheets of paper and aluminium to produce works of art that study the apparently random formations of nature - such as snail shells, leaves, butterfly wings and ripples.

In his Swarm series, he took film footage of thousands of starlings flying across Northern Germany, and then translated that onto aluminium so that his paintings are literally a snapshot of a moment in their flight path.
