Picture Panels

The panels are the outcome of numerous experiments with float glass – used window glass, which is fused together with different kinds of metals and sometimes plants and merge into a chemical exchange.
I think about how we register the nature as a herbarium or in a scientific descriptive way – or depicting it in a romantic flower painting. My panels from the series The Secret Life of Plants are neither the one, nor the other. Rather it is nature itself: the actual plant fused together with silver, copper and aluminium thus creating a momentary crystallisation of nature.
