“Pressed” has been pieced together from botanical materials surrounding Arnold’s childhood home. She has used plants to print and dye the surfaces, and stitched together a collage of artefacts from our rapidly declining natural world. This work continues Arnold’s interest in displaying nostalgia and sentimentality through delicate textile forms
