Resurface aims to revisit a theme that the artist worked extensively in during the  years of 2000-2015, relating to microscopic images of plants. This was a series of a  dozen or more fabric paintings on biological topics, some from microscopic views.  These paintings on fabric were embellished with embroidery, and used a variety of  mediums, textile paints, inks, crayons and resist areas. They explored natural objects,  in an intense, colourful focus. For this exhibition the artist returns to and expands on  this theme, with close-up details of organic structures, plants and forms. The  exhibition includes pieces from 2000-2015 as well as a body of new work where the  artist has revisited mutli-media processes to explore the theme more deeply.
