Packwood Fragments: a series of prints based on images of a topiary garden attached to a National Trust Property: Packwood House in Warwickshire. The series explores how gardens and nature can be manipulated beyond all recognition. Views of the garden are depicted as hyper-green alien landscapes, bright and luridly coloured rendering the yew trees unnatural and incongruous.
The pieces were created by mono-printing layers of highly pigmented etching ink then overlaying photographic elements using a collage ‘image transfer’ technique. Details of the prints are shown here, the originals are a rectangular format with uneven deckled edges.
