Claudia Gurwitz

Attention to detail is vital to Claudia. She is a great observer of the detail of form, structure and shapes in nature. Claudia sees the unseen. She has always observed the world through a micro setting, zoning in on the unremarkable, less significant plant forms.

Claudia presents a magnified perspective of random plant matter, reframing these as vital structures in their own right. These micro-landscapes offer the viewer windows into this unnoticed space, revealing a world of texture and movement. She further breaks down these forms and captures the light between.

Claudia’s most recent image making has become further abstracting through the exploration of collage elements. Cropping, isolating and reassembling further redefine the subject. These slightly uncomfortable combinations of reconstructed landscapes are seemingly formal and technical, at the same time as being organic.
