EVOLUTION'S GENETICALLY ENGINEERED LASER CUTTING [MINDMADE series]
Created: June 2014 - March 2016
Place of Origin: UK
Subject: Peony flower head
Launched: Easter 2016
The subject was photographed and digitally painted, but no added or substracted colour was used to change the hue. Deviations in colour occurred through pixel manipulation.
The artist’s inspiration is a passion for nature and wished to observe the change and fast response mechanisms which plants use to adapt to the challenges of an unpredictable daily climate.
The artist wanted to consider if there was something to be learned through their innate evolution in readily adapting to the seasons. As modern symbols of our age in environmental awareness, within their capacity as a universal language, flowers would also appear to have the ability to both adapt and predict the future.
The peony flower bloom reveals an exacting symmetry to contrast its watercolour marking, but one must await for its precision to unfold in its own time, laser cut by the Spring light, under which its next generation is already in the making
The final interpretations often have ethereal, dreamlike and frequently futuristic qualities.
