Rucka Residency

Cesis, Latvia

8th September - 18th October 2020

While on residency at Rucka I worked on my 'Dissecting the Specimen' project. The project explored how we engage with plant matter, its physicality and ephemerality. Using a range of materials across drawing, painting and sculpture, I focused on the pattern, form and texture to break the specimen down into its physical components. The resulting work aimed to detach and distort from the original specimens in order to reframe and refresh the ways in which we view and engage with the natural world around us.
