„Fern Unfolding Kiokio Screen Print“

from the gallery of Patricia Howitt

Looked at in closeup, there is a great deal of power in the developing frond of a fern, and that is one of the things that fascinates me about ferns. This was the first of a series of screen prints I created to celebrate Kiokio (Blechnum capense) which can be found on dry banks throughout New Zealand.

Though not as mighty as our magnificent tree ferns, it forms a great feature, as its adult fronds can reach 2-3 feet in length.
