Flower Constancy

This exhibition pays homage to the vital role of bees as pollinators. Over two millennia ago, Aristotle observed that bees limit their visits to the same type of rewarding flower ignoring other alternatives. A behaviour we call Flower constancy.

The handmade prints produced by different techniques such as cyanotype and bichromate gum entice observers to approach each piece and look closely to immerse themselves in a unique visual experience. Much like real flowers, the prints are intricately layered, utilizing translucent materials that interact with light in a complex manner. This interplay rewards the audience with a rich offering of colours, textures, and materials, providing a rewarding experience.
