Jacques Nimki describes his works as ‘florilegiums’, a word that literally means ’flower book’, a category of books from the seventeenth century where images are more significant than text. Nimki draws on a culture of collecting based on curiosity and beauty rather than scientific investigation.
For florilegium SW7, Nimki has crafted an intricate paper cut using hedge bindweed, field bindweed, shepherds purse, stitchwort and chickweed.
