Intertwining, flowing forms and vivid colours, ‘Wander’ is a response to the remembered experience of observing weeds and wild flowers during a local walk. The way in which the wind caught the stems, causing them to quiver and flutter, creating a spectrum of shifting colour abstracting their natural form. This piece is an exploration into how memory distorts experience, using sculptural processes to transform and change the physical form of the plants witnessed into something abstract yet strangely familiar.
