Urban Weeds

 
What is a weed? A plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
 
 

These prints were exploratory work on spontaneous urban plants, i.e. weeds for my MFA thesis.  By identifying and examining the benefits these rebellious plants have on their environment I hope to elevate and bring awareness to them, and by extension, the space between binaries, and the beautiful things that can grow there.

 
 

If it’s true that a weed is, as Emerson put it, “a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered,” then I hope to show how all weeds are virtuous for being as rebellious, resilient, and free as they inherently are.
