The Cactus Garden pieces aren’t replicas of cacti & succulents, to think I could “reproduce” nature in its perfection would be arrogant but to infer their reality through attention to detail and context is achievable. To this end I studied the hundreds of images I have taken over the years from various botanic gardens around the world, and plants in my own garden; noting the nuances in their ribs, spines and proportions then researching their habitat and growing requirements. Finally “planting” them in terracotta pots filled with stones and pebbles and displaying them in appropriate scenes adds to the perception of reality.
