PRESSED

Based in the idea of pressed flowers, this body of work is about Nature under pressure. I worked in the window space of New Art Studios in Mary’s Abbey, Dublin. Hanging in the window were three wild flowers pressed between two sheets of glass. As there was no paper to absorb the moisture the plants grew moldy and black over the course of the project. I drew them as they deteriorated.

While on the Draiocht Residency, I made a regular walk around the Town Centre environs.  I kept a journal and log, with details of what I saw notated in words, maps and sketches.

While I was on the Erasmus exchange in Manchester, I began this method of working.  I take walks, and document what I see in a notebook.  I take photos and make sketches, and collect random found items.

The notes are made in a map format, with written and drawn notations.
