Ipomoea pes-caprae… astringent… / Artwork
This biochrome image was created with Ipomea per-caprae, a healing plant, which grows along the South-East Queensland shores. The work is from the 'Medicinal Plant Cycles' series, which draws on natural science and extensive consultations and discussions with members of the Quandamooka community of Minjerribah / North Stradbroke Island in Queensland.
This work is one of many created during my PhD studio research. The focus on Minjerribah medicinal plants aims to promote the recognition, appreciation, and value of local medicinal plants in the context of Aboriginal knowledge and natural science.
