About The Artwork

Drawing is an integral part of my artistic practice, often performed on a large scale I am seeking to create a physicality within a two dimensional surface. By drawing the overlooked and disregarded seed pods found within our landscape I hope to elevate and transcend these tiny forms and reignite our fascination and wonder of the natural world, while also bringing botanical studies into a contemporary art context.

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.
