Statement of Intent
A close inspection of nature can reveal a mysterious and ethereal world of contrasting layers, fragments and patterns.  I wanted to explore this further.  Taking inspiration from old masters and 18th century botanical drawings, the intention of the panel is to consider our connection with the natural world.  Capturing moments of fragile beauty, the images suggest the passing of time and an element of nostalgia.
The images also act as a synthesis of my own deeper feelings.  How we appear to others on the surface does not necessarily reflect the layers of emotions inside ourselves.  It is only by closer inspection that we unveil and reveal the detail of our true self.   The panel is ultimately intended to be contemplative, allowing for a reflection upon human experience and existence.
