Walking through the suburbs of Sydney you see an array of different flora and fauna. Some native, some introduced, but all flourishing in the glorious Australian climate.
'These Weren't Stolen from My Neighbour's Garden' is an exploration of my home town. It looks at the delicate beauty and captivating interaction of the flora that lines me street. From native gum leaves, to dried yellow banksia and the introduced purple clover. All these plants give identity to my neighbourhood and remind me of home.
Composition plays a large roll in this artwork. Not quite a bouquet, yet not in their natural form, I try to capture a single moment in the plants life. Wether freshly cut, days fallen or weeks dried up. The beauty of a plant exists in all it's stage of living and decay. I want the audience to take a quiet moment, to focus on the story these flowers and leaves are telling, at this exact moment.
