Horsetail Equisetum – About:

Horsetail Equisetum is my first large-scale work, commissioned by Gollifer Langston Architects for City and Islington College.

This is a further development of ‘the enlarged gaze of a child’ from my Green on White exhibition, shown as a small postcard format. The dramatic magnification of the image up to 17 x the original size, runs in parallel with my work, which questions our relationship with nature, and its effect on us as human beings.

This installation is a new approach to my subject matter. It allows the repetition of the image to extend the existing pattern, creating an abstract rhythm when viewed from different perspectives.

Through my monograph, Fleur: Plant Portraits I have begun to establish collaborative works. Simultaneously I am working on personal projects, which question my placement within nature in a broader context.
