Catherine Jones ARPS - "Associate" Panel

Statement of Intent

This panel was submitted for an Associate Distinction in September 2015

I stood in my garden one beautiful evening last summer thinking, what a shame you can’t bottle these blooms. But of course you can - with a camera.

Then you can have a collection of pretty flowers in bottles to give a little cheer and hope through the long dark winter months.
As a panel they might resemble bottles of preserves on your kitchen shelves. The gently varying treatment is designed to hold them together as would soft, drift-planting in a garden border. The flowers inside are lasting longer than those that got discarded. On each shelf, running diagonally through the panel, you see a
traditional posy of the same cut flowers deteriorating in a vase of water; a reminder that you can’t really make beauty last for ever.
