Opening Reception, Saturday, September 9, 6-8pm
A series of large “etchings” on silk, Flora XL by Nora Pauwels, utilizes oversize botanical themes to explore ideas of documentation, typology, portraits of a neighborhood, climate change and archiving the everyday and ordinary. The images embody wistful qualities that express a quiet desire that plants will mutate into gigantic versions of themselves and overtake our present situation.
Etchings on silk using Plexiglass plates and carborundum. Printed on black chiffon and white habotai silk.
