Via Negativa

Via Negativa; a title taken from a medieval mystical tradition which found darkness singularly illuminating.

In Via Negativa, the opulent sunflowers so beloved by Van Gogh have been re-worked into a series of ‘brutal bouquets’ each bloom blackened and shrivelled, as if some centre to a dying star.
