Nature? Skull

Michael Broberg, who currently presides in Denver, CO, brings us this literal reminder to get back to the basics.

I really like this piece because it comes to me in layers. The stenciled letters rush out to bring me their message of urgency. The geometric shapes obscure the skull that reminds me that our skulls are ever present, even if obscured by our flesh. And finally the root like fingers flowing from the skull are slowly creeping back into the once living, taking it back to nature. Thanks for sharing your message with your wonderful art, Michael. It's a message we should all keep in mind.
