'Organism Series'


For me plants are images of fragility, lightness but also power.

In my series I have used the most characteristic form of printmaking and produced multiple images from one plate and printed this on Japanese paper. This method of reproduction creates a powerful image and three dimensional illusion
as well as making analogies to nature.

The 'Organism Series' is about transformation, growth
and ideas inspired by plants as organic objects. I am fascinated
by unusual spaces and create work that is flexible to each setting.
