Boundless - Printmaking Beyond the Frame is a juried show held at Pataka Art + Museum, Porirua City. All the works in this exhibition are from Print Council Aotearoa New Zealand members.
The statement that support's my work:
‘A Florilegium - The Gathering of Weeds’
A patch of weeds has an ephemeral quality about it, always shifting and changing, depending on seasons and weather patterns. It becomes a gathering of temporary souls, as some will move on, while others become permanent fixtures of the group.
These groups of plants form an ever changing back drop to our world. They arrive without notice, taking up spaces and places we may have temporarily neglected.
But these plants were once gathered as treasures for food, medicine or simply a memory.
To gather is belonging to something, what ever that something is.
