A lightdark sea garden: seaweed pressings and prints by Jo Crook

About

A seemingly endless variety of shape, size, form, texture and colour can be seen in the seaweed pressings and prints of Jo Crook. Individual specimens are carefully arranged and pressed on to fine art watercolour paper, or digitally preserved as giclée prints. The finished artworks have some of the visual appearance of formal biological reference material, but their purpose is entirely artistic: they represent an attempt to impose formality upon natural beauty.

Jo Crook collects seaweed specimens from south Devon beaches where they have been washed up and are at the end of their biological lives. There is no loss to their environment, nor to biodiversity. Their beauty is retained and made visible in these works.

On display in the Cafe at RAMM and available to buy from the Shop at RAMM, these works complement Jo's pressed seaweeds in RAMM’s contemporary art exhibition Sea Garden.
