This piece, entitled Embed (2008), is part of my current work in the Natural Motif Series. The works employ detailed specimen drawings of dead plant matter such as husks and twigs along with snippets of decorative plant-based patterns from Victorian era wallpapers and textiles. The pattern-centric era of the Victorian period saw many of the advances in thought that would lead to our current day understanding of patterns in nature such as genetics. These works riff on the idea that in our current age of information in science and culture, finding meaningful patterns within information is often as difficult as it is valuable.
Finally understanding what it is to be baptized into Christ’s death.
