A selection of collages from an on-going series.
I have taken inspiration from and re-purposed pages from books of botanical drawings making new variations through collage of biological forms with recombinant DNA. Playfully dystopian, the collages suggest a world where environmental degradation has spawned new flora incorporating textile and print ephemera as a type of genetic modification. In the spirit of the scientific observation of botanical drawings, I invite you to view my investigations of these new strange flora and to contemplate with me, our fascination with beauty found within the exotic in nature - as un-natural as it may become.
