Rainforests, plains and prairies are being destroyed by industrial agriculture and replaced by monocultures as humans demand more meat.
My research into industrial agriculture’s environmental impact led me to pollen - this amazing life-giving material that will be seen by future lifeforms as a marker for human mistakes and destruction.
I started collecting different forms of pollen and discovered its delicate and unpredictable colours. I decided to use it as pigment and started painting.
I create text works, painstakingly produced with pen and pollen ink, which catalogue my own journey in understanding this threat of environmental destruction. They cover a broad range of topics including reflections on family life, personal mottos, quotes and statistics charting the impact of agricultural progress
