From the artist "With botanical imagery as a reference, my recent work is an exploration of the architecture of nature, and an aesthetic vocabulary of hybrid patterns and forms.
Using a process of deconstructing the substance of nature and reconstructing it with a reverence for process, the work only alludes to natural representation. The aspect of ornament that interests me derives from a romantic view of nature and a search for visual pleasure. I am working with deliberately modified natural plant forms, which reflects my study of the origins of ornamental designs and stylistic conventions evident in the reimagining of nature."
