“In the first instance, ‘Transplant’ refers to the activities of early botanists, such as Joseph Banks and Daniel Solander, who sailed on Cook’s Endeavour and collected exotic species previously unknown to Europe. At the same time the establishment of botanical gardens promoted scientific understanding and enabled the public to experience at first-hand, the wonderment and diversity of nature.

‘Transplant’ also refers to my moving house and, after 38 years, having to establish a new garden and studio. On this occasion I created a small urban meadow of randomly scattered wildflowers. The resulting blooms have attracted bees, butterflies and other insects, continuing the natural cycle and adding further to the enjoyment of our flora and fauna.”
