Botany Research

Being naturally drawn to more traditional techniques and less inclined to using technology in my practice, I decided to go out into the wild (Moses Gate Country Park) and collect plant samples and images for myself. These samples will be pressed and used in sketchbook research and pressed into clay to collect relief prints. I will also be using their natural liquid to try to produce prints and paintings, like the artist Jai Redman.


Images collected by Faith Nelson, 2016

Jai Redman is a visual artist, his work deals with personal experiences as an environmental direct activist and social justice campaigner in the UK over the last 25 years. Jai Redman uses water collected from the subject he is painting or anything which is relevant to the subject, his work is currently being showcased in the Manchester Art Gallery.
