Retina Diamond Leaf

Diamond Leaf Retina

Retina Diamond Leaf, on show at Art at the Bridge 7 (Tower Bridge Engine Rooms), evolved from a collaboration with poet Frances Presley in 2015 and coincided with the publication of her anthology ‘Halse for Hazel’, funded by the Arts Council. The work incorporates the concept of bridges as neural networks along which sparks of light can travel. The drawing, superimposed on an inverted photo of the feminine hazel leaf, refers to the repairing of a damaged retina and the fear of losing the ability to see and connect which is described in Presley’s text.
