About The Artwork

Through a process of removal, and clear human intervention upon the seed pods, I am showing the unfathomable complexity and fractal geometry that exists with all forms in nature. These drawings are further abstracted in monochrome and become both familiar and unfamiliar to us. Like breaking open a rock to find a precious gem within we are gifted an insight into the hidden depths of the natural world. Both my sculptural and two-dimensional practice are investigations into the timeless and formless intelligence within nature, the ghost in the machine. No matter what is removed there will always be another layer of truth waiting to be revealed.

The native seed pods of Australia have become a central theme in my work. Not only do they house and protect the multitude of new life, they also symbolise nature’s continuous renewal and growth. Our natural world is an endless flow of life coming into form, moving through form and leaving form. My work transcends the everyday/mundane natural objects that we find scattering the Australian land, and re-awakens a fascination with our natural world. When we become aware and mindful of our environment we see that “what has always seemed so natural reveals how wondrously supernatural it is” (Frederick Franck, The Zen of Seeing). By working with the seed pods I am showing the unfathomable complexity and depth of the natural world, while simultaneously pointing to the impermanence within it. Both my sculptural and two-dimensional practice are investigations into the timeless and formless intelligence within nature, no matter what is observed there will always be another layer of truth waiting to be revealed.
