Cut paper work
Touch Me Not, detail
Cut Paper

April 2013

Part of a series of studies on poisonous plants. In "Touch Me Not" I was thinking about the desire and impulse that comes from wanting to do something and being told not to. So many poison plants are beautiful, in this case nightshade and nettles, and they lure creatures in using looks or smell.
