"The Blooms series is a celebration of the contemporary botanical image. I have always be captivated by traditional botanical paintings and prints. In this series I seek to pursue this motif using a contemporary language/ medium.
I have included my own dyed and painted papers in these hand cut collages. Choosing to interpret the textures and organic shapes in blue and white is in reverence to the rich history of this color pairing. First in China and later in Europe, blue and white wares were treasured. Taking the bloom formations a step further, I am including a multiple color palette as well as cyanotypes and vintage papers in this series."
