In Safe Keeping pays homage to the natural treasures we gather, collect and study. Colleen has long been fascinated with natural history collections, and through their horticultural background, herbarium specimens. There is a reverence to the taking and preservation of a single fragile specimen. When pulled from the crowd and treated with care, these individual beings are elevated to a position of great importance, capturing a moment in time and inviting study and appreciation through a quiet and still voice.
This body of work comprises ornithology, entomology, mycology and herbarium specimens and collections – a gathering of works in paper, as fragile as those they represent and intended to be observed closely and cherished in safe keeping.
