Lucid Orchid Dream, 2018CORAL LANDS‘These unusual and precious sessile animals exist alongside bright colours and night sky backdrops, creating familiar yet dream like vignettes, encouraging the viewer to delve into their own imagination. Coral has long been a source of fascination and mystery for early philosophers and scientists. Theophrastus, Aristotle’s pupil included them in both his book on stones, and in his Enquiries on Plants describing them as “large stony plants that reveal bright flowers when under water.”The works feature stars and moons which hint at the lunar relationship and cyclical synchrony within all nature, also symbolising the artist herself living with Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, a debilitating hormone-based mood disorder which follows a predictable, cyclic pattern where imbalances arise during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle.Each planetary day, coral emerges at dawn and retreats at dusk. One magical night of the year on a full moon, entire coral reefs spawn, reproducing in synchrony. Their eggs are carried by ocean currents to create new life, shining a glimmer of hope for this disappearing life form. It is my hope that this series draws the viewer into the strange beauty and acute fragility of this life form and highlights the devastating impact of humans on our oceans.’
