Lichens - the legacy of flora
Simple fungi, simple algae interwoven and symbiotic live as minutely patterned lichens on hard and unforgiving stone.
Textures on stone have been a continuing source of inspiration. I am particularly drawn to the colours, textures and structure of seemingly insignificant organisms that live on them - lichens.
The idea that two organisms – a fungus and an alga – exist in a symbiotic relationship and produce lichen which can only really be seen clearly microscopically is so intriguing.
