From the Garden to the Kitchen
Continuing an exploration of where wildness is within the domestic environment, and what I can learn from using art to explore my home, I took one step inwards, from my work in the garden (see Why Not My Garden?) to our kitchen.
When I walk and make, I gather materials to make marks with, and respond to my experiences of the woods, trees and fields with text that describes what I notice. In my kitchen it was very similar. I placed the paper in the centre of the room, stepped onto it and created a piece of work from what I could reach out and take from the cupboards and fridge.
Spices, beetroot, blackberries, soy sauce, linseed and rice joined together in a sensory, bodily exploration of the space, textures, smells and colours held within our kitchen.
