rebirth, this work started from me watching some of Matthew Barney’s  Cremaster  work . http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2014/jun/16/matthew-barney-river-of-fundament-film

I had previously been looking at internal problems caused by illnesses and the immune system and decided to look at endometriosis and how it effect women internally.

using the death of a sunflower to produce this sculpture with plaster and clay. the sunflower seeds i tried to fix in and wasn’t sure if when the thing was turned out the seeds would stay fixed, to my surprise they did stay fixed in and they have started to germinate within the damp plaster. at some point they will die off again . Looking at the piece I am pleased with how it has turned out with it just being an experiment . Now i need to look at how i take this idea further, im looking at either progressing with seeds growing in strange surfaces or producing more of these works in various sizes.
