This work explores the hidden world of plants through microscopy: taking the viewer on a microscopic journey into the flowers of endangered plants.
The resulting micro worlds are reminiscent of the beautiful nebulas we see in space; simultaneously alluding to both beyond and within. The parallel drawn between these two realms reveals a new sense of wonder at the repetition and complexities that exist within the natural world.
Bloom forms part of the Plant Room Project, a project that examines five native species to South East Queensland which are currently listed as endangered: two of these species, Plectranthus habrophyllus and Notelaea ipsviciensis are featured in this work.
The Plant Room project was proudly supported by the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF). The Regional Arts Development Fund is a Queensland Government through Arts Queensland and Ipswich City Council partnership to support local arts and culture.
