A Flower

Plants form a link with the world of myth and show us the animistic side to our existence, in which mankind is to be seen as a part of nature and not as its master. Plants need to be part of a dialogue with the human world so that their forgotten, hidden qualities become visible.

I record the progress of my research by means of documentation and photography. These form an open-ended collection, constantly expanding as time passes.

The results are to be seen in the form of sketch-books, photographs and my illustrations.

The outcome of my field research is set out in a record of my own study of plants as well as of other people’s observations. These provide the basic structure of my artistic method of revealing, by intensive observation of the outward appearance of flowering plants, unknown, unexpected or forgotten dimensions. The essential quality of the plant is conveyed by its external image.
