Propagation begins with the tissue of a healthy specimen. I do hope the human race remains fertile!
Having purchased another of my works that featured hands, a hand therapist asked if I had others. I did not, so I offered to create something. As I stood in front of her and clasped my hands, almost as if in prayer, they moved apart, to flower, to grow. She was enthusiastic about the concept. I first thought to plant the hands in a vase, but a pot was much more appropriate. And a series of three showed the different stages of growth. What started as a ‘light’ image became dark as I played with various lighting effects. Recognising that this was too ‘dark’ for her clinic I created a lighter version for her, which she loves. Note: no humans were harmed in the creation of this image.
