About this Item

South African 1973-
Unmappable Realm

signed and dated 2021

ink and acrylic on card and found map paper ephemera on bamboo backing
100 by 94cm excluding frame; 112 by 112 by 3,5cm including frame


This artwork is part of a series of paper collage works that take their inspiration from both observations of the natural and mineral world as well as visions and experiences with plant medicine journey work and altered spaces. This series of collage works are mostly abstract; they often deal with the paradox between fragility and strength and unstable liminal spaces or suspended moments between destinations. This piece, titled Unmappable Realm, is part of a larger body of work titled Nature’s Code.


Acquired directly from the artist.
