Between the Vernal Equinox and the Summer Solstice, botanical samples are collected within a pre-defined physical locale. These specimens of time and place are cast into bronze, thus changing their meaning from specific foliage samples to the representation of more general ideas of flora. These bronze botanicals are then reconfigured according to narratives that create a snapshot portrait of a particular place at a particular time. The resulting sculptures incorporate ideas of taxonomy, cross-pollination, grafting, hybridization and genetic modification.
