The author project the relationship between Art and organic matter. The beginnings of the most primitive forms of artistic creation (spirals, waves, hand surroundings or animal shapes in their cave stages) , the classic Architecture and its vegetables shapes; evident in Karl Blossfeldt`s photographic work; the learning of composition in the Art academies based on Fibonacci sequence and its Divine Proportion, suggesting God as the author; the theory of colour as clear reference between Art and botanic, flowers as the most perfect expression of beauty and erotic attraction: “Insects copulating with vegetables”.

The illustration bursts using pragmatic equations of growing geometries, Darwin as an explanation and tool, Monsters of Modernity erasing God once again from the equation.

But the process continues, new means of scientific analysis arise, the natural selection questioned by Lamarck's followers, Life as the supreme state of matter or the Heisenberg`s Uncertainty Principle patch the basis of that enforced reason.

Is the man (Art) the one utilizing divinity (Nature) or God the one using the Art?

The route drives us to the presence of organic morphology in the artistic creation and the representation of beauty.

The objective of the piece is to prove the relationship using techniques of alternatives imaging of macroscopy (Scanography and Focus Stacking), wherever the eye sees but not pay attention, as it is searching this link.

God and its divine proportions in front of Reason and Science. An eternal conflict.
