Sonya Patel Ellis: The Earth Laughs in Flowers
Sonya Patel Ellis, 'Rose', 2014

Floral cuttings hover in suspended glory, deceased yet striking in writer and illustrated book editor Sonya Patel Ellis’s herbarium display. Devising a traditional botanical press to seize collected specimens from her garden, flowers and plants remain in a perpetual state of serenity. Accompanied with other mixed media works, Ellis’s fascination for the taxonomy and etymology of all things horticultural is poetically enlightening in our age of digitised pursuits.
