pattern study 1


pattern study 2

Pattern study is a series of photographs taken from the eroding and decaying surface area of a large root of a tree.

pattern study 3

Found in the woods in a nature reserve, cut down, unearthed, lay bare to the elements and engulfed in the process of deterioration.

pattern study 4

The considerable period it had spend decomposing left behind the visible marks and traces of time on its now frail fabric and substance.

pattern study 7


pattern study 8

Tree bark eroded and peeled away, revealing the wood in some places yet leaving in others behind its textures and fibres.

pattern study 9

Exposed wood, subjected to sun, moisture and the tireless work of insects, now bleached and porous.

pattern study 10

Networks of cracks ripped through its surface, eating into the brittle wood, leaving flakes chipping and peeling.

pattern study 11

Fungal growth established, in and around the physical deterioration, ornamental patterns of delicate shapes and subtle colour.

pattern study 16

This entirely unintentional momentary visualisation of the natural process of disintegration produced a fragile object of astounding aesthetic.

pattern study 17

An aesthetic not premeditated, but rather formed from within the system of organic renewal.

pattern study 18

An aesthetic of impermanence; being in existence only as an incidental by-product of biological regeneration.

pattern study 19

An aesthetic rejoicing in the recognition of extraordinary marks left behind on the perishing surface of a root as an ephemeral work of art.
