Carved Honesty pod & Kawakawa sculptures

Item details

Pods conjure for me an image or form encapsulating potential, abundance and vitality.
Seeds themselves are, for me, the ultimate vessel for life. Seeds are “where it all starts”, a complete store of all the information needed to engender growth toward full realisation of the individual.
Specifically with the Honesty Pod (Lunaris annua) I tap into the wealth of meaning with an instantly recognisable object, at once iconic and ubiquitous. A perfect nascent form of nature.
I also bring to the fore childhood memories, of ‘pretend’ money and a play on it’s name, a word not often allied with money.

Acrylics and powdered chalk paint on carved board.

My sculptures give a sensual experience as well as a visual one. Careful attention to detail, whether in form, surface or shadow is central to my practice and works.
I am attracted to the minutiae found in Nature, especially objects that are often bypassed or go unnoticed.
