We describe our work as 'horticultural installation art' as our area of interest principally concerns new ways of engaging with and representing landscape and nature. 

Our area of interest principally concerns new ways of engaging with and representing landscape and nature. The combination of Heywood’s background in horticulture and anthropology and Condie’s in botany and zoology has resulted in the formulation of a unique series of art works, which are often hard to classify. Our practice crosses many genres including land art, sculpture, horticulture, painting, video and performance and individual works can often synthesize elements from all of these disciplines in their final realisation. So, often a work will be the result of multidisciplinary investigations into an area of interest.

For example, a sample of nature could be captured on film, translated into a drawing within a happening, which is turned into a maquette and then a monumental sculpture, which then may become the prop for a film, performance piece or installation.

Our works vary in scale from large-scale public commissions covering many acres to smaller gallery-based work including micro landscapes in petri dishes. A notable feature of much of our work is the inclusion of living plant material.
