To the naked eye, nature can be seen as accidental and disorganised. Deconstructing Flora is a series of photographs concerning the exploration of chaos in the natural world. The concept of this work presents flora that has been disassembled and laid out in a grid-like form, portraying that nature is not as jumbled as it seems. The grid form is a clear illustration for both disorder and structure working together in one image.


Sarah is a Canberra based conceptual photographer who has recently graduated with honours at the Australian National University, majoring in Photography and Media Arts. Her work explores the natural world, as she uses photography to illustrate detail in flora and the underlying order in all things natural. Sarah was awarded two emerging artist industry awards in which she will have residency exhibitions; the Alliance Francaise Exhibition Award and the ACT Legislative Assembly prize, which she received in 2011.

Sarah is also a member of the Canberra based group Random 9 and will be contributing to an exhibition in February called Rebuilt.
