Description

This work is of a large species that I found via Instagram from someone travelling in America. I was really struck by the luscious fleshy growths and the ball like blooms. Cacti to me symbolise regrowth despite adversity and I used to find their stillness troubling as a child. These days I love their apparent solidity knowing that they are actually fragile. I find that tender and moving.

I'm really loving being able to get more expression into a new series of capturing cacti & other flora in an impressionistic & literal way.
