‘Picked’ is a series of 6 paintings with 6 accompanying films. The paintings are watercolour and acrylic on board, and are true to actual size depictions of wild flower posies made in different locations around Orkney mainland. The little films that accompany the paintings show the flowers in situ being picked one by one. The artwork explores the act of picking, the natural setting of the flowers, the tension between the posy as gift and the absence or gap left by the picking of the flowers.
