‘Seeds’ represents the footprint or nucleus of life, of thought, of creativity.
“I wanted to capture the essence of life represented in the seed, the influence of the wind in carrying seed and natural planting. In this collection the seed and seed heads are exhibited without manipulation, colouring or change. Placed on the underside / reverse side of small 7 x 7cm canvases, intended to represent the earth where seeds germinate. The larger works are 1m square and hold the larger cardoon seed in various configurations”
‘Seeds’ was first exhibited August – September 2017 and is currently exhibited in Orchard View and Hazel Copse Cottages as part of the ‘Living with Art’ project.
