The Inner Landscape is about parts of the landscape rather the representation of the Landscape in a traditional way.
The inspiration for this series came from the “Treasure Hunts”, which we do with my young art students. We collect seed pods, leaves, twigs, sticks and other things that fall on the ground naturally or because they are used and discarded, like bread clips, computer bits, and other small things.
In our Studio the small treasures become wonderful drawings, painting and prints done by children.
For me, as the artist becomes “The Inner Landscape” a reflection on what makes the landscape. The close look at bark, textures and the inner parts of plants and trees, the cells and the vascular system of plants that connects with my own physical and emotional “Inner Landscape”.
