Resolved pieces relating to the buttercup study


Pulling of buttercup stems after they'd flowered, showed a different side to this plant; the amazing tangle of their root system. These shadows show this off beautifully and suggested how the root could be considered a positive feature. So, thinking of how the world often appeared quite 'upsidedown' during the pandemic lockdown, I allowed the roots to be the positive feature and not the flowers. 

So I had fun playing around with different permutations and using the text 'upsidedown world'.

...and using naturalistic formations and more formal composition as below.

Long grasses were also entrancing as they swayed in the wind. Here the grasses are couched down with stitches the different angles denoting the rhythms of the movement.
