Description

My inspiration began from a young age from my observations of
friends and family with their life stories that have unfolded in front of my
eyes: secrets, trust and relationships. I have also wanted to portray what I
see into design that can be beautiful but also tells a story. From looking at
“The Illuminated Language of Flowers” (Marsh 1978); a book about the
metaphors and meanings of flowers; I developed the idea of recreating this
language to represent the way we, as society, view the working class. I explored
the concept that society does not see them as blossoming beauties but instead as
unwanted ‘weeds’ that are not part of the garden (world). To create this idea I
began with observational drawing, then started to explore plant silhouette
imagery, transferring them onto card then curving them to create a 3D design
that is rising from the paper to create the feeling of growth. I found that
card is not a suitable material to create a 3D wall-covering, so I looked into
making my designs in metal using the materials to represent the urban areas
people live in. I cut out and styled the designs myself with a plasma cutter,
then I would file and spray paint them before curving them into a 3D
wall-covering design.
