3 ways of working with plants
Duality Multi-Arts Invasion, WKP Kennedy Gallery, North Bay
3 ways of working with plants (physical, essential, ethereal) point to a very different, yet accessible world in which our ancestors walked, lived and dreamed.
working with plants in a physical way creates a visceral, tactile relationship: smell, colour, grain, texture, movement all emerge from carving and sculpting one layer to the next.
working with plants in an essential way pushes us to perceive the luminous vibrations of colour that emanate all around us, even within invasive species.
working with plants in an ethereal way deepens our understanding of the otherwise unknown and often ignored sentience of the plant peoples.
