Influenced by the deep and intertwined relationship between nature, self and kin. These works distill a particular set of stories from within a triennial period, encapsulating personal intimacies and experiences.
Reflected in the seasonal colours, symphonies, aromas and feelings that form our natural environment. The collection itself, confides a personal affection and partiality towards long grass, for both its mesmerising beauty and deep metaphoric abilities.
There is a song of beauty and honesty
that can be found in Long Grass.
Each strand its own delicate individuality
of natural elegance and perfect flaws.
It is as beautiful when golden
and weathered in the Autumn,
as it is green and lush in the Spring.
It stands on its own.
And sometimes if it’s lucky,
it will intertwine with another.
And be it through a Winter storm
or a soft Summer breeze, it will forever
sway and roll in time with its kin.
