Dock Leaf eaten by insects

Dock Leaf eaten by insects

One of a collection of prints exploring the beauty of decay and transformation. The images of leaves partially eaten by insects reminding us of other lives lived on a different scale, parallel to ours and largely unseen.
I started collection insect eaten leaves when I discovered a bed of viburnum in Morrisons car park in York; it seemed that the beetles had written messages on the leaves, the holes had a distinct logic and the negative embroidery fitted the form of the leaf in a very satisfying way. Since then I have returned to the car park for more supplies and also found other plant/insect (and slug) combinations that beautifully embody the cycle of nature.
