Dried aliums, stainless steel wire, watercolour
A work inspired by a talk in my studio on ‘Being a Pilgrim’ given by the ecological philosopher Satish Kumar. I used the Allium because it is a plant which symbolises unity, humility and patience, qualities that Satish talked alot about. Following his address Frederikke Magnussen and Sean Sutherland discussed their movement ‘A Plastic Planet’ which has done so much to raise awareness of the environmental catastrophe caused by world dependancy on plastic. You can hear the discussion below.
