Artwork Description

EDMUND THORNE (1809 – 1883)

Edmund Thorne was a nineteenth-century British naturalistic and botanical illustrator known for his in-depth study of marine life during the 19th century.

Born in England, Thorne nurtured an interest in marine life from an early age. Despite being a self-taught illustrator, his work held appeal for both academics and divers, enhancing the scientific comprehension of marine life. He spent much of his career developing and perfecting immersion technology to advance the study of underwater ecosystems.

His most noteworthy discoveries were made during his research along Australian coastlines. He discovered new, seen-before species of corals, meticulously documenting the in his illustrations.

His detailed records offered the first comprehensive study about the Thornea Stellata, a specific coral species he named after himself.

Unseen Flora shines a spotlight on the fantastical and surreal botanical illustrations created by four British scientists and artists: Charlotte Bancroft, Beatrice Hastings, Edmund Thorne and Theodore Winslow.

The series has as its focus the concept of post-truth, contextualized in the contemporary digital age where the boundaries between real and virtual, natural and artificial, seem to become more and more obscure. Especially after the sudden influx of innovative technologies led by AI language models and image generation systems, the notion of truth has become even more arbitrary, always hidden behind a thin veil of plausibility and verisimilitude.

Unseen Flora stands at the interplay between these areas: the series wants to explore unreal but plausible histories through the visual depictions of the four illustrators, offering us an unprecedented glimpse into their imaginary botanical dimensions
