Combining a taut, wound-up painting technique with bold, blown-up representations of vital structures, Claudia Gurwitz explores natural form. Although her painting stems from the strength and potency of plant forms, it challenges the notion of botanical art: it is not about flowers or plants at all; it is not a botanical survey, nor is it intended to be photorealistic, or even entirely representational. In fact, the subject matter is almost irrelevant – the work is about form and structure, balance, harmony and tension. Through careful observation in a micro setting, Claudia exposes the essence of the object, breaking it down into texture, contrasts and movement, and revealing its core.
