Orchids

Orchids fascinate me as they mimic various organic life forms like insects and other plants. Nature is full of such disguises and transformations that operate for optimal survival.

Orchidaceous refers to the bulbous section of the orchid which offers its own direct and metaphorical references especially for such a sensuous plant!

Orchidaceous Hybrids as a series of paintings investigates visual cross-fertilization, by emphasising and isolating shapes, layering and superimposing this varied species.

I also produce abstracted but more realistic flower forms.
