Botanical StudiesMy work is an exploration of visual messages and the manipulation of their meanings. I have taken images from the BBC News website on a daily basis and altered them from images of war, famine, malice and political unrest, to representations of the components of medicinal plants. The medicinal value of these plants can help towards healing the pain of the original message of the image. As well as the medicinal reference, even just a virtual representation of the natural world can have a positive impact on our mental stability and rehabilitation according to new research. Just as botanical specimens require a closer inspection to reveal hidden detail, my illustrations hide news headlines within the folds of petals and leaves.
