Plant Morphology/Archaeology

Works on aluminium, wood and paper.

Continuing an interest in ‘the accidental poetry of the ordinary’. My system of working is like sowing seeds; images grow out of the processes.
Plants are trapped on sheets of aluminium or wood under layers of paint and varnish, which fixes and ossifies them.

‘Archaeological’ scraping and sanding uncovers these artificial fossils, exposing the morphology of the plants, some having been grown from seed between glass sheets whilst others are grown normally and then pressed.
