from 1,500.00

In these photographic pieces, Alyson Mowat investigates the relationship between two natural elements, juxtaposing the organic and the inorganic qualities of plants and minerals, respectively, resulting in the great aesthetic beauty that nature delivers. 

The association of the seemingly stabilised crystals and the breakdown of the plant as it decays towards death, evokes the relationship that exists often in nature between parasite and host, begging a comparison of the parasitic association we hold with our own world.

Despite the seemingly opposing structural changes, both the plants and crystals move, gradually, towards a decline in order.

The photographs have been produced in collaboration with photographer Tal Silverman.
