In response to the invitation to take part in the “Living Proof” show I began thinking about the central notions of survival and adaption and how feeding and nourishment were central issues. On this thread I decided that I wanted to work with the plate and its circular form. I have always loved Willow Pattern plates and felt that they are a widely recognised icon.
Borrowing from the titles of Darwin’s publications I worked through a pictorial evolution using the composition of the Willow pattern as my template to produce a tripytch for works.
