This work is about the context of imagination for creating a fantasy world. The flowers are interpreted from memory, not actual depictions of existing species. They reflect the historical influence of the portraiture-like studies made by the European Botanical Artists of the turn of the century. The colored pencil drawings are spontaneous and direct, and focus on the fantastical fluidity of line. The waxy medium of the pencil gives a sheen and vibrancy to the color. Both the line and gesture of the drawings inform the paper sculpture. In these reliefs the flowers grow without restraint, beyond the boundaries of the frames. The paper sculptures and drawings are made from the same French rag paper. The flowers are hand formed, each petal, hand cut, shaped and adhered with an archival glue.
