Floralia II and the series of works from which it comes evolved from a time reflecting on my inspirations and their impact on my work. I'm often struck by the sense that we share so much of the same visual language with our ancestors even as our world changes and their meanings evolve and it's this that I wanted to explore, whilst paying homage to the artists that have inspired me over the years.
