Christina Wigmore and more art by Nature V Nurture

Christina Wigmore, 2021

GBP 100
Mixed media collage
Knitted
stripped copper wire and bioplastic.

How we grow as human beings is shaped by the people, we are close to and the environmental and social conditions we need to grow and develop. The age-old question of nature v nurture is explored in Christina’s mixed media collage.

Combining photos (a nostalgic family favourites of a child and her fondly remembered dress) and reclaimed and created natural materials (stripped and knitted copper wire trapped in bioplastic), the petri dish artwork aims to show we need both nature and nurture to sustain our being.

As the petri dish piece ages. It is likely the copper wire will change colour as it patinates through being trapped inside the bioplastic, just as people change and grow over time.
