Petalhead 11: Homicidal Hummingbird Maneouvre No. 2

Ink and Watercolour on Paper; Digital Inkjet Reproduction, 2007

“Petalheads” is a series of ink and watercolour drawings that depict the lives of flower-headed men and the trials and tribulations they face in the Natural world. In the series, the petalhead portraits function as a marker of time and of the petalheads that have come before, rose tinted and of another era.
