Certificates of Authenticity with each artwork
Inspired by organic cells, fossils, minerals and plants, the artist used India ink in combination with elements of the ancient Japanese Suminagashi technique of paper marbling.
The aim was to create visual forms and textures that imitate and amplify nature. Due to the qualities of the materials used, the process of making was very fluid and alive, the resulting elements are partly calculation and partly chance. Just like in nature, every element is unique and cannot be repeated.
Cutouts, made alongside the ink elements, both echo and contrast them, serving as an allusion to the fragility of our nature.
The artwork evokes a sense of meditative calm and tranquillity. It attracts a viewer with its alive-like quality, as the shadows move depending on how light changes during the day.
India ink on beautifully textured 600gsm khadi paper handmade in south India from 100% cotton rugs.
