Artwork Description

Photograph on paper

Signed on the back.

This image is part of a larger series called the Raving Beauty Series. A vibrant bunch of flowering gum was gifted to my household. It was so glorious that we kept it as a feature in our lounge room, well into the dying process. Even in it's decline these beauties were captivating. It was in particular that I was drawn to photograph the plant during this phase. Signs of life come from the marks that life create. so just as the veins show, the wrinkles and the withering, that is where I get caught in admiration. Perhaps especially so, because we struggle to admire the signs of life in our own bodies.
