Segment Furring

Claire Mc Dermott

Inspired by the plumed seed of a Tragopogon pratensis L (Salsify), the drawing depicts the intricate interlacing of secondary plumes and spines through a macro lens. The segment of the plumed seed is held up by triangular uprights, representing book pages. The upright triangular book pages hold up the drawing and symbolise the free fall of the seed and the sloping floor of the Beaconsfield Gallery, reflecting the artwork's title. For this artwork, sustainability was embraced by restoring an old college easel with recycled wood while I repurposed a demijohn. The fringe of the demijohn was hand-sewn onto the card from a cereal packet with the adapted necklaces. Avoiding plastic beads, I chose to buy a variety of necklaces sourced from charity shops that represented my multicultural community.
