The paintings of the young artist Ina Gerken oscillate between abstraction and graphic techniques and hence develop a very special, haptic quality.

I am a plant

Natural processes in art
Artists are and always have been ahead of the crowd when it comes to empathising with nature. This catalogue looks at individual artists and the way they used natural processes. Starting with medieval manuscripts, we show how images that expressed sympathy with nature have persisted through to the Post War period and Expressionism, right up to the 1970s, and how today’s artists can use traditional images of the micro and macro cosmos in a productive way, to discover better ways of interacting with nature.
