Artwork description:

This print is part of a series of works called Petrus. These woodcuts explore soil samples which were collected on a journey around Taunton and the subsequent bacteria from the soil drawn into agar in petri dishes. The part of the journey was drawn on the agar and then left in the dark for the bacteria to grow and spread.
These explore the hidden world of the landscape and form bacteria paintings through living matter growing and forming shapes and colours in agar. These were then drawn and created as reduction woodcut prints, forming a new form of landscape art, whilst also exploring ideas grounded in Feminism, Poetics and Realism.
The universal symbol of the circle draws parallels with our reliance of the land, fertility, growth, culture, boundaries and represented notions of the 'feminine maternal principles' and Ecological Feminism.

Edition: Four print run on Norfolk Paper Stock.

Some of these in this series will be exhibited at the Centrespace Gallery in Bristol (October). The exhibition titled 'Overflow' examines ideas based on Ecological Feminism.
