Invasives: Beauty Versus Beauty (part I) addresses ideas about ecology, biodiversity, and individual notions of beauty in nature. The project is my personal exploration of the plants that grow in our backyards, along the edges of fields and parking lots, as well flora that are cultivated for their beauty.

 By portraying selected plant species in isolation or with one or two other species, I invite the viewer to question his/her own concepts of beauty and function in the landscape, and explore ideas about biodiversity through my observation of native, invasive, naturalized and cultivated species of plants.
