All representation is a reduction and a reappropriation containing a core of the observed source plus elements of the artist and the ideas that drive them.


'Regrowth'- I want to capture the complexity of the structure of a tree and use this to reflect upon the network of systems that exist in the biosphere.

'Replicate' - This tree is a potent metaphor for knowledge and life; a living example of interconnectivity. It is an intelligent cycle of growth and regeneration.


' Reappropriate' -  Ecology is the science of the economy of animals and plants. There is no waste in nature -matter is indestructible but passes through an endless cycle of change. We need to embrace stories of ethical capitalism.
