Pit Land Against Sea is the umbrella title for our ongoing projects. In Towers, we explore and exalt the flora that could be found in our earlier landscapes; with Paysages and Silver Birds we reinvent those compositions in a quest to highlight the traces of sublime, living things within real-life environments. In Abacus and Avifaunae, our aim is to create whimsical taxonomic field guides of such often-overlooked biodiversity.
Pit Land Against Sea is dedicated to two pioneering naturalists: Maria Sibylla Merian and Eleanor Glanville.
All works are graphite and silver ink - plus various additions of metal leaf, foil and coloured pencils - on Fabriano 4 paper.
