This body of work was exhibited at the Otter Gallery, Chichester, January 16 – February 14, 2010.
This body of work uses the metaphor of flowering as a life cycle of beginnings, growth, change and transformation. Some images focus on the massing of separate elements to make a different whole and subsequent fragmentation. A language of imagery has been developed that is repeated and transformed, echoed in the use of printed fragments and collage. The series contains several large pieces of work, smaller panels and works on paper.
Viv has kept a detailed studio log of some of her recent projects on www.vivmartin.co.uk and uses her blog to comment on current work and activities.
