Fragilaria II

Forming part of a series of contained objects, ‘Fragilaria II’ derives from my interest in microscopy and making the invisible, visible. The pieces are like sculptural ‘microworlds’, transformed from the two-dimensional view (as seen through a microscope) of various minute specimens, into three-dimensional entities. Like surreal landscapes, they seem both real
and imagined.
The use of pure white porcelain - which is my chosen material - imbues the work with a fragile, delicate quality, reflecting the often fragile and delicate state of my subject matter, the natural world.
Containing the pieces within glass vitrines references scientific collections and cabinets of curiosity, isolating the works, giving them significance and a jewel like presence. The scale of the pieces encourages close examination and thoughtful observation, leading to a curiosity of what they are and what they mean.
