Every day on our way we pass all kinds of things that most of the time we don’t even notice. They may be little pebbles, shells on the beach, or in this case fragments of broken branches that lie on the ground in all kinds of fascinating colors and shapes. I find that I am rarely attracted to the beauty of perfection in nature but rather to the imperfection, asymmetry, and the intimacy of decay. In this series I am quoting images that come from the world of plants. abandoned pieces of branches with motives of parasites that grow on a body of another.
I build these pieces from thin sheets of silver that are fused and soldered together. In this process of work I try to bring up the experience of building processes of organic articles in nature. By putting this “hand maid” branches on show I’m hoping to focus the aye of the viewer on the things that are normally disappearing in the crowd.
