NATURE AS MODEL
Jutta Barth examines natural growth and networking processes, both graphically and sculpturally. Her design is conceptually grounded in a reductive and process-oriented exploration of these subjects. She starts by choosing an initial form which she varies throughout the drawing process. Each piece is a product of this slow, meditative process – from manufacturing the recycled paper with embedded vegetable elements to completing the drawing itself. Barth’s objects and installations make reference to nature. They focus on growth and decay, draw inspiration from processes of organic development, and contrast natural forms with artificial materials like grids or letters.
