“Scotoma” N. Scotoma 1. A partial loss of vision or blind spot in an otherwise normal visual field.”

Artist’s Statement

Through and beyond the realms of botanical drawing, this body of work explores notions of perception and invisibility. In peeling back layers and examining microcosms, the imperceptible networks and connections that enable communication between organisms becomes visible. Exploring and exposing the systems and patterns that sustain life, such as the vasculature of cabbages or webs of mycelium, is a simultaneous acknowledgment of and attempt to eliminate the real and metaphorical blind spot with which we live.
