This piece entitled ‘Universal Understanding’ caught my eye - it is by Ashley Mackenzie, an artist and illustrator based in Toronto, Canada. I really like the conceptual nature of her work, as well as the fact that the illustrations are so beautifully executed.

Beili Liu. Encirclement. Installation and performance. Thistle, pin, dimensions variable.
Thistle is a fierce plant well armored with sharp prickles all over itself, from the stem to leaves to flower buds—much protection for its soft purple flowers. After blooming, the plant sends out feathery white thistledown into wind.
Encirclement is created with hundreds of thistle plants, stemming perpendicularly from the wall, outlining two silhouettes of a standing and a bending figure. The performer then positions herself inside the thistle field, disguised/ camouflaged with thistledown. The beautiful plants surround the body as if protecting her, while she is in fact being embraced by the countless thorns of the plants.
