Here’s a new painted paper cutout that’s part of a recent body of work of small  floating organic worlds. It’s entitled Rhizospere 50cmx30cm.

The Rhizosphere is the thin top layer of soil where many tiny organisms and the roots of plants exist side by side.

As a child I remember digging my fingers into the soil and examining the results – bits of decaying plants, tiny bugs, worms, roots, strangely shaped pieces of I don’t know what (maybe bones). This was a mysterious parallel world to my own. Beautiful and strangely alluring.

Is the butterfly trapped or is it the King of this small world?

The shadows are important, a colourless version of this world.

Here is Rhizosphere backlit.
