Part of an ongoing series of works based on immune boosting plants and trees from the East and West.
The imagery in the print references plants like Dogwood, Poppy, Pear, Nasturtium and Kale.
The title ‘Nascence’ has its roots in the latin word ‘Nasci’, ‘..to be born’.
This project first emerged during the first lockdown when I was in India. It was a way of bridging two worlds through my long running interest and love for all plant life.
