Cross Breed

13 Apr 2017 to 23 Apr 2017

I am passionate about the environment. My immediate surroundings of different plant species makes me think of their life cycle and growing conditions. In today’s climate, I am interested in how native and introduced plants compete with each other and how evolution and climate change play a role. Structure and colour combination becomes a viewpoint to the work, suggesting the idea of cross-breeding.
