About This Print

DECAYING LEAF

The artist’s obsession with decay stems from a desire to portray the pure and natural beauty of imperfections, unconventional in a modern society striving for flawlessness. Fluid, dreamlike shapes caused by the warping of once pristine petals and leaves may crystallise into unexpected recollections in the eye of the observer; the progression of decay has added a satisfying individuality to its subject. Exploration of the past and future of oneself, reflected in the image, is encouraged by the abrupt freezing of the ever-flowing life cycle of the subject.  Curled up and vulnerable, perhaps into a foetal position, the leaf captivates with crinkled shapes and exposed veins. A dramatic firework-like display of unexpected vivid colours are released in these final stages of the leaf’s life.  In the originals, gentle watercolours were contrasted with typically harsh biro pen to create stunningly detailed works that portray both the beauty and mortality of the leaf.
