Invisible Harvest evolved from a performative engagement of the artist within her most recent sculptural installation Anima Requiem - A Funerary Garden.

Anima Requiem explores the garden as a site for transformation where life and death are interdependent. It celebrates death as a rebirth experience. Evocative of another world, the installation allows viewers to journey through and contemplate the ongoing creative possibilities of Nature and the imagination.

Organic materials that represent the cyclical nature of life and death such as oyster shells, buffalo and cow horn, fish scales and leaves have been hybridised to create new sculptural entities symbolic of new life and metamorphosis.

In these images, the artist has repositioned herself in the ritualistic process of gardening -harvesting and planting her own sculptural forms. As creator, she represents the invisible and intangible; unknown yet familiar; and universal connecting spiritual force that drives evolution of all species and creation.
