Since 2012, Norwegian artist Thorbjørn Sørensen has worked on watercolors with the title “From Nature”. The watercolors display fragments of nature; a mound, a twig, tufts of grass or a bird. The works stem from an interest in the study of nature and desire to paint small, insignificant plants. The series revolves around the amazement over nature, genesis, hierarchy, art and science. The plants and growths are plucked out of the ground, brought into the studio and painted as small still lives, taken from the artist’s neighborhood and the area around the studio. The paintings explore the inconspicuous and non-spectacular right in front of us. The book presents the whole series, “From Nature”.
