This artwork was created while experimenting with using natural dyes to create artworks. Using the power of nature and the natural stains and pigments felt very liberating. I took a series of super slow motion videos of squashing the pomegranate cells and I was mesmerized by the captured moments of the each explosion. The Power of Pomegranate captures the beauty and moment in time of my process, which turned out to be one of the most cathartic artworks I have created recently. The photograph has been manipulated digitally and then printed on c-type and mounted to the reverse of 6mm acrylic which harnesses the shine from the fruit cells. This is also available as a print on brushed aluminium.
