Series of Prints 'Abscission'
Definition - The separation of a leaf from a plant is the result of a natural change.
Each leaf represents a fond childhood memory of time spent with my grandparents. The way in which nature has a life cycle and so do we. Geometric prints placed on the surface highlight the symmetry and pattern that is hidden in nature, something we do not instantly see. Within the enamelling process there is an element of spontaneity, there is only so much I can control. Another underlying importance mimicking how we cannot control what happens in life. Photographing the leaf and using a mirror image emphasises the circle of life.
