"I have developed experimental printing techniques where the plants ‘draw’ themselves. I call these ‘The Pigment Print’, ‘The Graphite Print’, and ‘The Ink Print’. I have also taken this into ceramics, experimental photography, and some simple sculptures.
This print utilises my Graphite Print technique for several wild plants including St. John’s wort, nettle, and yarrow that had sprung up spontaneously in my urban environment in Dundee.
Interested in the entire forms of the plants including their roots, I came across an old Scottish word, Makdome that was used to describe ‘form’ but also suggested an underlying elegance within that. It pointed to the harmony that underpins all living forms."
