This screenprint is part of a series entitled ‘Mesostic Herbarium Word Garden’. A mesostic poem is when a vertical word is intersected with horizontal text.
Like most of Finlay’s work, this series of prints is concerned with nature and contemporary culture and uses words to create images. Others in the series include ‘Marigold', ‘Walnut’, 'Oak' and ‘Tormentil’ with only the colour of the main word changing to reflect the subject of the print.
Edition of 16.
Alec Finlay (Scotland, 1966) is an internationally-recognised artist and poet whose work crosses over a range of media and forms. Much of Finlay's work considers how we as a culture, or cultures, relate to landscape and ecology. Through permanent and temporary interventions, integrative web-based projects, and publications, Finlay weaves together generous experiential works, often collaborative, sometimes mapped directly onto the landscape, embedded socially or accessed online. Recently Finlay's work has focussed on place-awareness and ecopoetics.
