Dizzy Pragnell's work is a curious interpretation of seemingly everyday ingredients encouraging the viewer to look with fresh eyes at the familiar. Her vegetable and fruit papyrus explores the role played by the ingredients, as symbols of reproductive nature, which give man foods essential for survival.
The vegetable papyrus is made using similar techniques to the ancient Egyptians. A fusion of overlapping felinely sliced fruit or vegetable fibres which laminate to form a textural surface. Each delicate sheet becomes an arrangement of colour and tone, retaining the essence of its origins with our sacrificing the essential reality of the natural form.
Dizzy Pragnell has exhibited internationally and across the United Kingdom. Her work is also included in a number of museum collections.
