Festival: 2022

My practice is inspired by archival materials and historical sites, focussing on artefacts and places where the veneer of civilisation has worn thin.
This work shows the ruined remains of The Grange, Northington, one of the first places in Europe where tropical plants were hot-housed to grow: plants that flower at different times of year blooming together in a state of perpetual spring. This work shows an unnatural glass-house luster as nature finds angles, holes and crevices in the Victorian stability of their captor’s home, in movements that record a pure wild state.
