The initial mapping and subsequent editing is the same for the flower series as it is for the street. Though the flowers represent sensuous organic content in contrast to the rectilinear geometry of the city views. This second archive records the various stages in the life of a plant from bud to a flower in full bloom and its then fading. Each phase has its own beauty. The resulting composition combines all these phases. Like a bouquet you’ve never seen before, each montage is printed at a scale and detail many times life size. The idea is to give the viewer a closer and more complex look at things they may see all the time but never really register, in terms of presence, color, detail and monumental scale these images attempt to reinterpret classic genres of still life and city view. Recent advances in digital technology give the artist new tools for the creative process and work flow. Richardson prints all images in her own studio for greater control of color on a wide variety of photo papers.
