This work is part of an ongoing series titled O Hanami, utilising scraps of natural material from my garden and walks around the landscape in rural Northumberland
I am fascinated by the patterns of leaves and how they echo the macro landscape with field patterns and river valleys
The grid pattern motif is a regular feature of my work echoing maps, windows, the commoditisation of the landscape. The regularity with which human activity leaves scars and marks.
The O Hanami works have been recently published by Kozu Books.
