Hogweed stalks floating on pond

Hampstead Heath, London


15 December 1985

Diary: 15th Dec Hampstead Heath

Overcast, breezy, dry. cold at one
period. Warm now. Collected Hogweed
stalks - white inside - took to pond -
made dark frame with nettle and
dark stalks - pinned Hogweed
split open into strips - inside upwards.
went to ring Art Angel - came back
work disrupted by a dog - remade.
Would have liked to have made it
much bigger but goes dark very
quickly. Not a bad work.
