Artwork description:

This is a series of works made during lockdown reflecting the all the preoccupations and yearnings of this strange time. These hand cut paper relief collages are framed in vintage Clark's (a Bristol institution) pie tins that I have customised.

The Weatherglass Flower: I have been learning more about native plants and mushrooms during this strange year, especially wild food that is growing as a ‘weed’ in my own garden. Like a lot of people I’ve been taking comfort in nature, taking time to look at all the small living things in my garden and the woods nearby. Some of this research is finding its way into my current work. The scarlet pimpernel (Anagallis arvensis) is not edible but has a wealth of stories attached to it. As well as being the assumed name of the hero of Baroness Orczy’s novel, the scarlet pimpernel is an unassuming little wildflower that closes up in cloudy weather, opening its petals again in morning light. One of its folk names is ‘shepherd’s weatherglass’.
