Image Statement: Loci is a snapshot in time of three gardens that sparked and still hold my interest in using plants as charged materials to forge connections with ancestors. Loci contains three books, each dedicated to one of the gardens that supported my plant investigations. Each book is composed of monoprints created with plants harvested from their particular landscape.
