Violet Storm celebrates the powerful, regenerative forces in nature. It is the chaos of a storm bringing scouring rains to assist new growth, natural erosion and the dispersal of seeds. Native to New Zealand, the seeds of the kōwhai tree have a hard outer coating allowing them to float in the water. In a ‘Violet Storm’ the kōwhai seeds would be swept away by the deluge, scraping against rocks before they settle on a distant riverbank. The gentle battering they receive enables water to penetrate the seed casing and begin the entire germination process. What in nature has the power to destroy also has the power to restore.
A dramatic storm-shrouded landscape suffused in light, colour and shade. ‘Violet Storm’ is the featured cover art for the New Spring Collection Dark Mountain: Issue 17.
