Entry Description

With this series, I wanted to study the similarities in shapes found in these selected plants. After photographing them separately and at different times, I started noticing their likeness. Their textures are all quite unique yet ones sees that they all contain patterns of circles My photographic process involves first taking the plant apart and then photographing and scanning each piece. Then, I reassemble the many images together to produce a body of work which I feel is strongly intense yet fragile. Each final image consists of anywhere from up to 50 multiple single images and takes over 3 months to complete.

About Photographer

Graduate of the Ontario College of Art, Toronto Canada. As an artist, I am fascinated by both the continual change of negative and positive space through movement and the process of taking a living organism, fragmenting it, manipulating it, and then re-inventing it into an entirely new entity which resembles the original, but is in fact, entirely contemporary. An image which sways between reality and surrealism. I am ceaselessly driven to analyse the botanical and human form and in turn, to produce images that excite, intrigue, shock and generate new thoughts, to conjure up new sensations. I specialize in the use of multiple photographic imagery.
