Mc Dermott paints and draws spent botanical flowers to focus on an unnoticed concept.   Creating a fusion between the familiar, but forgotten, expressions. Using microscopic research on the anatomy of spent flowers as her subject and inspiration for the sculpture.  Michaelmas is a new body of work that combines natural contorted forms, colour and texture to create harmony with in the work.

By placing a screen in front of the sculpture, naturally creates a partition and changes how object art is viewed.  The need to now interact with the artwork and look beyond the surface of the transparent object created a natural human interaction, grounding the entwined sculpture and making the space around it appear solid. 

Mc Dermott asks, could these screens be seen as a mask for the sculpture?
