Flora Body Series, 2010
My work often explores private, domestic spaces because the objects within those rooms become metaphors for identity. The Flora Body series that explores the garden as another private setting. I am interested in the way the garden becomes a space for growth, renewal and transformation. Also, it is a place where the cycles of life are present. I have memories from childhood of going outside into the garden by myself early in the morning. I knew all of the flowers that could be smelled, touched and even eaten in the garden. It was a place that I felt safe and in power. I am currently working on sculptures that are derived from the forms of flowers and also have references to the female body.
