My artist practice is all about watching the nature around me, I especially enjoy growing flowers in my garden, in Sussex from seed, and documenting their lifecycle. Each Autumn I like to watch the poppy seed heads decay as they leave behind the most beautiful structure. I like to imagine that these structures are a window into the world of nature. Through and beyond these decayed structures is a beautiful landscape.
I am trying to highlight that the tiny flower that is beautiful in summer and rots away in Autumn is all part of the ecosystem and the wider landscape beyond, that is why I have semi-camouflaged the seed heads into the background.
