‘I am interested in the ways we observe the passage of time in the world around us. We see it in nature, in organic and geological forms which mark time’s passage in the structure of their development - sedimentary rock formations, tree rings, wasp nests, and shells, for example. All grow or develop incrementally through bands or strata of material. Other organic forms I am drawn to include seeds, pods and flower buds. Each is a promise of future growth, opening up and revealing a surprising complexity.”
