My images are a contemplation on pollinisers, pollinators and pollination an exacting process that is fundamental to the world’s food source but usually goes unnoticed, quietly working away in the background of our daily lives. When moths, butterflies, bees and others visit to harvest their essence there is a choreography that nature has performed throughout history. In these encounters, the flowers disclose their secret to the pollinators, who take it home in the form of scent and taste.

I approach my images without plan but as an exploration, letting the images grow upon themselves, they build like memories. I started to carve linocuts of flowers and observed and imagined pollinators from my garden and others gardens for around 5 years adding these blocks to my extensive alphabet of lino blocks. I have also expanded my studies to well known flowers of the past from images in the public domain adding history to my body of blocks creating a universal garden at my finger tips. The process of carving allows me to concentrate on the object of study itself, letting me concentrate on that particular flower, moth or imagined pollinator while printing allows me to dream on the elusive elements, the colour, music, the life and death of the flower, the memories of when and where and which have been pollinated.

I hope the images illuminate memories of flowers planted, plucked, gathered along with the imagined music and dance of the elements of the significant process of pollination.

Honour Guard panel IV

Linocut

I think of the trees in this image as Honour Guards of my personal environment. Each tree is unique and striving to stand strong against the charge of urban development. [br]Contemplation and observation on planted trees in our environment was the muse for this piece, drawing on the idea of the 'honour avenue' i.e. the planting of trees as a dedication to individual service men and women who gave their lives in service to their country in time of war. The practice originated in 1917 in Ballarat, Victoria. We plant trees in our urban spaces as guardians for the living in the war for the environment. They are there combating climate change, cleaning the air, providing oxygen, saving water, preventing soil erosion; providing food and habitat for wildlife, warmth, privacy, shelter and unifying the landscape. They are vigorous, weathered but dependable and beautiful. They are living soldiers for the environment.
