  • BENTHOS- THE WORLD IS SEARCHING FOR GLOBAL PEACE, UNITY, AND HARMONY  “YENG AND YANG”.  BLACK AND WHITE PLAY THE LEADING ROLES IN FINDING THIS BALANCE BETWEEN THE TWO. TRUE EXPLORERS AND  WISDOM SEEKERS SEARCH FOR ANSWERS IN THE DEEP OCEANS, “GOD’S CREATIONS”, AND OUTSIDE OUR UNIVERSE. THEY USE TECHNOLOGY IN ORDER TO LOOK DEEPER INTO ALL CREATURES, PLANTS, AND NON-LIFE FORMS USING X-RAY ART… NEWER RATHER THAN COMPLICATED PATTERNS AND PRINTS ARE ABOUT TO EMERGE.  TEXTURES, FROM PUCKERS TO SLUBS, ADD AN ELEMENT OF NORMALITY TO SOLID AND LAYERED COLOR, WHILE SHEER TO SHEEN SURFACE EFFECTS ADD AN ELUSIVE ILLUSION QUALITY TO THIS REFRESHING SPECTRUM.  A VERSATILE FAMILY OF COLOR FOR SPRING/SUMMER…A ASSORTMENT OF ALL COLORS FAMILIES…BRIDGING COOL AND WARM SPECTRUM…FEATURING COLORS COMBINATIONS FROM BENTHOS- Benthos is the community of organisms which live on, in, or near the seabed, also known as the benthic zone.  SCALES FROM SEA LIFE INSPIRE THIS COLOR PALETTE AS TO THE NEED FOR TRANSPARENCY ON ALL LEVELS OF OUR SOCIETY.
