exploring miniscule series



Oil on Board 60 x 60cms, 23.5 x 23.5 inches

The shapes found in nature fascinate me, flowers, plants and insects create amazing shapes and natural forms.  Many of which are very geometric to the growth patterns of a climber, how a plant arranges their leaves to the more obvious spirals within a snail shell.  The symmetry and perfection of a newly opened flower is breath-taking, and I haven’t lost the wonder of how nature manages to create it. 

Pom-pom Dahlia's are one of the most majestic flowers that show this symmetry.  I love to pick the flowers that I grow in my garden in Sussex, UK and have them in vases around the house.  Once arranged in the centre of the table, a little friend will often pop out from the flower (or perhaps several) and start exploring the table.  The earwigs that love to hide amongst the Dahlia petals are a reminder to us, that we may have picked a pretty flower for the house, but we have just picked their whole world and we have an impact upon the natural world however large or small.  I therefore, had to add an earwig to this picture, as it is not just the butterflies that like these flowers – can you spot him?
