A selection of collages from an on-going series.
Taking inspiration from and re-purposing pages from books of botanical drawings I am making images of new variations 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 my new strange flora and to contemplate our fascination with beauty found within the exotic in nature - as un-natural as "Nature" may become.
