The “Botanica Vulnerablis” Series celebrates the vigour and fecundity of the diverse and extraordinary botanical forms to be found in our marine and terrestrial environments. I create quasi scientific names for my imagined forms and capture the botanical sculptures under glass like the scientific specimen displays of the 19th century.
I seek to remind the viewer of the importance of botanical diversity and its vulnerability to mankind-generated change to climate and habitat. This work must be hand collected from the Nolan Gallery
