For a few years, Moira Buchanan has accumulated photographic images of nature and its environment. Her current exhibition – Morphology, is chiefly based on the inquiry of organic forms with an intimation of their landscape. By means of traditional and contemporary methods, she has reproduced these images onto hand-produced paper as studies, or sculptural pieces. Buchanan uses recovered materials alongside traditional and contemporary practises in paper making, print process and mix media, to identify her subject-matter within an intimate space.
The artist, through this exhibit, is acknowledging the natural influence of the environment. For her, the explicit joy of finite objects within its landscape is a reminder of the delicacy of all organisms. It is also a reminder of our responsibilities to take greater care of our loved spaces and its need to thrive, to grow, and reproduce.
