Work Print Series Perennial


The prints in Perennial were partly inspired by a consideration of the botanical ‘repeat' in design. From Persian carpets to the clothes on our backs, plant motifs are extremely enduring in the patterns that surround us. I selected parts from the imagery of discarded plants that I gathered during each season at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh to construct a repeat. The series as a whole alludes to both our ongoing manipulation of the environment and the constant repetition and looping of the seasons.
