Butterfly Bush - Buddleja davidii

Created: 2012  
Size: 116x80cm  
steel etching
My work is a concerted search for the structure of things: taking recognized structures apart and putting them together again. Abstraction is part of the process - what you see at first glance is not necessarily what it is.
This artwork is part of the ‚Flower’ series. The series consists of large etchings, printed on heavy mould made paper. They are images of weeds and wild flowers that turn out to be made up of human bones. At close range the Butterfly Bush's flowers reveal themselves as tiny hip, hand bones and knee caps and its stem as arm bones.
