I am using natural dyes and colours from plants in an extended and experimental form to understand communications between human, plants and animals. I blur the boundaries between art, science and philosophy, creating biochemical natural colour processes. Interdisciplinary art projects highlighting the environmental sensitivities, water quality and sustainability.

The sky is not blue

I have used a bio-vat, an organic process that uses natural woad, microorganisms and antioxidants from plants that create reduction by fermentation.

 

I work in close relationship with the material, sensitively experimenting and exploring. Using time-consuming and dynamic natural dye colour processes; the importance of each step can influence the final result – the process. Complex sequences give natural colour their extraordinary wealth and changing subtle nuances. My holistic interest in nature and human ecology works in parallel with how I create colour from the seed and soil to my own expression. I think it’s very interesting when the natural material/fibre and the biological colour force transforms into a unified physical form. It is an on-going dialogue, where location, flora, water, people, time, light and sound are part of my work.
