Delighted to be showing a solo exhibition of original prints that combine the expressive qualities of both traditional and digitally mediated printmaking techniques. The work, exploring themes of growth and decay – produced over an approximately eight year period – draw upon historical modes of scientific illustration to weave dream like observations referencing aspects of the current state of our world.
