"The 'Little Garden' series of books continues to contextualise the garden as a theme to explore the connections between the physical and narrative properties of the book and the garden. The intentions of this series of 'mini books' were to specifically explore the overlooked and often commonplace details and miniature narratives of nature within the garden through the use of scale and the physical properties of the material of the book reflecting the textural and physical qualities of the subject in order to engage the audience in an intimate, contemplative and sensory reading of the work."--Artist's website.
"Skeleton uses a fine, slightly translucent but slightly crisp hand made paper, reflecting the delicate and fragile nature of plant and leaf skeletons within the garden and the transience of life."--Artist's website.
