In which I suprise myself with my ability to create something entirely devoid of meaning.
About this creation


Really though, this is just an excuse to dabble in surrealism, try out a patterned cheese wedge "rug" technique, use my new olive cheese, and experiment with a "false base" compositional look.

Thanks for stopping by, and Soli Deo Gloria!

Interesting techniques being used here, you should incorporate it into other builds

incredible tree! love how the roots are shown as if they were growing in clear soil. I loaded up on Olive cheese also, saw it in the pick-a-brick wall in Chicago a couple weeks back. I just know I'll regret not having got more though. One can never have too much olive cheese...

It's only meaningless if you say it is. Looks very cool, at any rate.

I'll have to nick that technique next time I need a rug for an interior. Bricklink, ready some cheezlopes!

Olive cheese from the PAB wall I take it? Yeah, I got some too. Great little build man! ~ Chris.

I like this. I see a cross or two in the bottom, obviously you're suggesting that religion is an anchor to be uprooted in order for new life to sprout. ;) Great job composing the reflections.

That carpet technique is simply stunning, great job. Beautiful sculpture, all the more so because of it's lack of meaning.

Be like T.S. Eliot and pretend to assign meaning to your build.

Quoting Toa Infernum Nice! How'd you photograph it though? It has a really uneven base.
Quoting A M Oh, and I have been wondering for awhile now--what is your secret to your excellent pictures? Your background and coloring are fantastic. Is it mostly post-production, or does it look that nice in-camera?
Thanks guys! This post will probably answer your questions: http://www.flickr.com/photos/paulvermeesch/11273776213/

Oh wow! Okay then! Nicely done. The 'roots' have a cool look to them and I like the use of cheese slopes. Nice job! --Blast--

How do you fit the slopes so close together?

et's soh crazeh! I never got the point of "meaningful" art. I just like making stuff that looks cool. Why does there have to be a bunch of symbolism and other stuff?

Oh yeah, that's great! Has this overnatural sense, while actually has no sense ;P The style reminds me on steampunk ;)

Great build! You've created an interesting set of colors and textures in this MOC that really work well together.

Beautiful! Love them cheese wedges, the pattern is extremely interesting, almost like a real tile floor with grout lines. And the chaotic root patterns contrast nicely with it. It's always interesting the negative spaces that they create. Great job!

The bottom of the tree and the green reminds me of an avocado pit laying in water, sprouting out roots with the avocados insides floating in the water. :) Nice one!

That's awesome , I really like the cheese wedge pattern it looks cool. Aggressive root system you've got there :-)

Aw man, this would have been the perfect opportunity for a Beastie Boys song title pun... "I kick it ROOT DOWN". Pretty build Paul!, ~DK
