Freaks of nature / Growths – 2000-2001.
Pencil drawings on paper.
A series of drawings made after a trip through Australia in 2000. The light and climate in Australia is hard and that creates many contrasts. In these drawings I looked at the Australian landscape on a micro-level to explore the following dualistic values of it:
soft and hard
light and dark
sharp and vague.
I took small natural objects as a starting point: photographed or taken as a souvenir.
