Presented as part of Entwined: plants and people exhibition
The lives of plants and people are inextricably entwined.
Curiosity, greed and intimate connection lie within our passionate and destructive relationship with the plant world.
The shapes and colours of plants drive our sense of harmony and beauty. They are healers of both mind and body, providers of food, shelter and the air we breathe.
Without them, endlessly creating and re-creating our world, we can’t survive.
Pause, breathe, and notice the complexity and beauty of plants.
