Artist's Thoughts

This artwork is one of  a series of two lino prints that I made with the lesser known fynbos plants as theme – not the flowering fynbos plants such as the Proteas or Leucospermums, but plants that are often not noticed within the rich fynbos biome.    I chose them for their interesting shapes and textures.  I made artworks of these ‘unimportant’ plants and raised their status to be displayed on walls.

I found a parallel between these plants and us as humans:  God chooses us – even when we are unimportant / small / unknown and makes us His children and lifts us up to our new status.

This is a monochrome lino print on white art paper.  Every lino is cut and individually printed by hand.
