The Spot Set Screen Print
This piece is about classification and order of nature and animals by humans. Although the style of drawing and addition of text alludes to traditional natural history illustrations, the categorising (spotty animals) and composition of the animals is created in a more folk taxonomic manner, making a more unusual visual form. Folk taxonomies are distinguished from scientific taxonomies in that they are more associated with social knowledge and everyday speech. The title refers to the fashion world and its frivolous methods of having things in fashion one minute discarded the next. The spotty animals remind us animal print is not a seasonal pattern, but an important part of nature and survival for many animals.
