This ongoing series pays homage to important psychoactive plants that have contributed to global economies, challenged beliefs, caused violence, fueled addiction, promoted spirituality, raised consciousness, inspired art and generated legislation. My artistic practice involves growing or locating the plants, photographing them at various stages and finally recombining them into fantastical compositions that suggest their psychoactive nature. The scale the plants is much larger than life-size enhancing their mythological status.
