Of the Ground brings together a collection of prints and drawings made in response to the topography of a small fragment of Dartmoor. Pathways patterning the landscape are steeped in antiquity. The work interprets the plant life growing at their edges as metaphors for times past and passing time. It traces a human presence.
Botanical specimens are the substance of the work they are collected, pressed, printed and drawn. From the stark contrasts and embossing of the directly printed plants, the soft greys of the second impression prints to the subtle use of line and colour in the ink drawings there is a sense of the ephemeral.
