Georgie Russell - Herbarium print, Memory
The herbarium prints are available for Local Pickup only, cannot be shipped in the mail
Herbarium is series of digitally captured botanical photographs that capture the meditative space of the garden. The flowers and plants photographed were chosen for their symbolic meanings and traditional herbal uses. The Victorian language of flowers, herbariums, gardener’s lore and cultural symbolism are all combined, creating images that invite contemplation and thought. The four pieces each represent strength, heart, sight and memory.
Referencing Herbalism, Symbolism and the Language of Flowers, each collage depicts flowers that reference each theme.
Digitally printed botanical collages.
