LIGNUM VITAE

Final Year Print Collection

tempus in conspectu hominum: a time before humans

A vibrant, contemporary response to the parables of Genesis, in which the imagery described arises from the first told existence of a time before man. The hand painted illustrations depict an array of fruits (ripe and decaying), serpents, botanicals, and foliage. As there is no clear mention of an apple being the forbidden fruit, the collection illustrates a range of possible fruits that may have been bitten. The central design of the collection is a large intertwining branch in reference to the ‘Tree of Life’ - with camouflaged creatures, ‘lignum vitae' flowers and hints to metamorphosis, life and death.

The collection is designed for the interiors of a contemporary grand church setting, in which the lengths are suggested to be installation pieces, and support samples as nave seating, altar cloths, praying kneelers, pulpit antependium or side panels.
