About The Artwork

Nature is patched, yet the patch does not lack its own beauty. This is the third in a series of works highlighting conservation as repair. As in Kintsugi, evidence of the repair becomes part of the object's history. The interplay of natural and manufactured materials in the work underlines our intervention into the decline of some species. The form was deliberately allowed to crack - holly was chosen for this purpose. The 'staples' are made from copper electrical wire, set into hand-drilled holes in the wood. The subject chosen - an exotic plant - and the distortion of its form is also relevant. The over-emphasis of the bloom underlines our need to conserve the exotic and the beautiful - often at the expense of utility.

Art is a second career for both of us, and a journey we have undertaken together. We were both born in cities (London and Belfast), met in York and have since continued to move to increasingly rural surroundings. Having experienced the stresses of fast-paced city life, we know first hand how much we, as humans, need to connect with the natural world. Inspired by the wild landscapes, open seas and big skies of north Wales, our work explores the impact of nature on the human spirit. Sharing our love of the outdoors and making alongside each other, we seek to communicate the emotions and essence of peak experiences in both 3D and 2D forms.
