Amanda Thomson, Moneses Uniflora, 2012
Photopolymer etching with chine collé and handmade artist’s book, 33cm (w) x 49cm (h) (print) and A5, 24 pages (artist’s book)
Moneses Uniflora consists of a print and a bookwork. The title refers to the Latin name for the one-flowered wintergreen, which in the UK is a plant found in only a few places in the North East of Scotland. The wintergreens were the favourite flowers of Mary McCallum Webster, a self-taught botanist who died in 1986 and who wrote ‘The Flora of Morayshire’.
Moneses Uniflora, in a sense, is a homage to Mary McCallum Webster and women like her: often unknown and overlooked, but rare or special, and worthy of bringing to notice.
