Joanna Tidey
To create this series Mould Scrapes, Joanna Tidey set up a controlled environment and invited nature to invade. Tidey is interested in bi-products; how as one thing deteriorates something else can thrive. As Tidey describes the series,
“I see this work as live painting — continuously developing and evolving. Colours you would not expect appear, and create images of another world similar to landscapes and seascapes.  Mould Scapes I found as a suitable description; taking something out of its context and admiring it intrinsically.”
This series works within an overarching theme in Tidey works, an interest in natural colonies. Her work is inspired by a quote from Carl Sagan. 
“We are a way for the universe to know itself. Some part of our being knows this is where we came from. We long to return. And we can, because the cosmos is also within us. We’re made of star stuff.”
So far, Tidey has found this in ducks eggs, silk worms and moulds. To see more of her works, click here.
