'Gold' from the 'Faux' series by NZ photographer Boyd Webb (Born 1947). Faux is a comment on biotechnology and GM crops. The huge prints depict fabric flowers whose vivid colours are at first-glance akin to the vibrance of a real flower, this combined with an absence of reference point for scale creates an unsettling tableau, prompting the viewer to consider the frankenstein nature of GM crops. Boyd adds a touch of irony, using 'straight' techniques with no digital manipulation.
