One with nature, is a series of small collages that I created in January 2022, where I incorporated human silhouettes and fynbos plants in circular designs.
Actual fynbos plants were used and printed onto paper, using my home-made jelly slab and printing inks. I then made stencils of human shapes to block out silhouettes in the mono prints. When they were dry, I enjoyed cutting them into shapes and choosing various fynbos forms and colours as I created my compositions. I deconstructed the existing artworks and reassembled them into something new.
Becoming one with nature is what I often do when I spend time in nature. I lose myself to the visual inspiration, smells and sounds and I know that, on a deeper level, I am part of nature, as I am part of creation.
Human beings and nature – in harmony – becoming one – becoming absorbed.
We are connected – Human; Spirit: One with nature.
