'Blue and Orange Edge' is derived from a found photograph of Auriculas, a primrose-like flower I have been enamoured with for some time. People who grow them often become obsessed enough to cultivate and show them - they were favoured in Victorian times for exhibition and would be presented in an Auricula 'theatre'; a free-standing, open shelved cabinet, usually painted black to set off their unusual and many-varied palette and their distinctive silhouette.
