Hidden Beauty of Wild Irish and Polish Flora, 2019.

This is an ongoing project that evolved through an interest of botany. When I was younger, me and my mum, we used to collect the plants from the fields and she not only thought me about botany of Polish wild plants and their medical purposes, but also how to compressed them. 

 

The project evolved through a collective approach of wild flora and scientific one of studying them through microscope. The following photographs depicts the earliest investigation of Polish and Irish wild compressed flora through the microscope and that shows their hidden aesthetics that are not visible to us with our bare eyes.

 

It is a combination of a number of scientific and social characteristics as a means to discuss our current relationship with nature from an image making perspective and as an ecological imperative. Merging a number of materials and art making strategies. These include drawing, photography and sculpture.
