Hand-strung tendrils of thread cascade from my floral photographs, as if nature itself is unraveling.
In my work, flowers symbolize our humanity, ideas of sacredness, resiliency & hope. This series explores the term “hanging by a thread” implying something is in an uncertain state & not likely to survive or succeed.
As our environmental, social & political landscapes continue to divide & fray, the metaphor of a garden, idyllic & beautiful, reflects hope of an optimistic outcome, a return to connectedness & wellbeing.
I combine photography with thread, marrying organic subjects with artificial processes, digital manipulation with handmade – a tension between divine and human nature.
