Nurture Studies. SIGNED

Author:Diana Scherer
Title:Nurture Studies. SIGNED
Publisher:Van Zoetendaal Publishers, Amsterdam, 2012
Description:SIGNED. Paperback, 29 x 22 cms, 64 pp.The photographs Scherer has produced for 'Nurture Studies' recall the illustrations in 17th-century botanical encyclopaedias, images which presented every part of a plant, from the flowers to the roots. Her work also has strong similarities with botanical publications from the 1970s, in which indoor plants were often arranged on a pedestal and counterposed with fabrics that added a romantic touch to the whole. Despite her clear references to these predecessors, Scherer effortlessly avoids the perceived cosiness of the pot plant genre, producing images that are bare, unadorned and original.
