Charlotte Price: The Oakmoss Lichen (iii) 2017
Relief Print 1/1
22cms x 29cms (framed)
My work is derived from an on-going documentation of my presence on the ancient pathways of a moorland landscape where I often walk. The broken and bruised plants that edge these routes are ubiquitous yet insignificant in the annals of the plant world. They trace the journeys I make and those of previous travellers.
The prints allude to a Victorian fascination for the natural world. I collect and press the plants before printing them. The plants will go through the press several times but each impression is individual as there is a degree of deterioration at every printing.
The Lichen series has developed over recent months following the route of a Drovers path on the higher ground of the moor. There the omnipresent lichen holds fast to the granite that is itself rooted in the ancient forest of Dartmoor. The Lichen’s slow growth here and in suspension, as a net of lace, from the oldest hawthorn trees bears witness to the passing of time.
