Vibrant Cultivars 2021

The Manus Dei, the disembodied hand of the creator God, was often present in the art of the late Antique and early medieval period, when a full representation of God would have been unacceptable. The anthropomorphism symbolised divine intervention in the earthly sphere.

Here, within the boundaries of this contained, ethereal space, the hand is a woman’s hand, pruning and cutting new growth, cultivating new ecologies from her old, familiar materialities.

​DOCUMENTARY

A New Heaven and a New Earth 2020

A series of three mini worlds, exaggerated by the magnifying viewing sheet. Part diorama, part plastic vivarium, tiny 'babies' explore a futuristic world concocted of disused objects, changeable backdrops and replica organic forms
