Semblance of nature’s diversity
Bronze in Fine Art/Digitally Enhanced, Silver in Fine Art/Still Life, Gold in Nature/Flowers, 1st Place winner in Nature
In this series I have tried to investigate and portray, with my
images, the unique semblance of diversity in the various species
of plants found in nature.
Plants do have their own distinct personality.
This may be displayed through a sense of complexity; embracing
colour manifestations; or exhibiting strong visual characteristics.
Often they may be seen as fragile; or providing a sense of
protection due to their size and diminished colour.
There is often a tactile feeling that provides another dimension to
the image. So frequently, we are oblivious to the wonderful sense
of movement that a plant is constantly revealing.
How enchanting it is to feel a close relationship to the many forms
My process of disassembling the plant, photographing each piece
separately under different photographic techniques, reassembling
the many images again plus the use of a dark background allows
these divers plants to display their inimitable forms.
