"You seize the flo'er"

Inspired by a prose poem by Kathleen Jamie in 'Frissure' (Polygon, 2013).

"Attracted by the notion of transforming traces of a bodily experience into natural forms, I began with a familiar, 'illustrative' approach. I made studies in watercolour of wild Dog Roses at different stages in their life cycle. A quotation from Robert Burns falls off the edges of the page and flanks the rose stems... laid out in a tracery of Kathleen's scar, with colour washes laid down, to create a mood."
