‘This is my interpretation of the plant Senecio gypsicola. I wanted to capture the feeling and elements of the plant, from the ground components, to the bloom and seeds in my intuitive language of pattern.’ Senecio gypsicola is endemic to South Australia and found in the north-central area, it grows on mounds of black gypseous clay and ephemeral herbfields.
Senecio from the Latin ‘senex’ meaning old man; referring to the white papas attached to the seed. (SA Seed Conservation Centre)
