Ode to Nature, In modern day urbanization, nature is lacking in our daily environment. For some people even an almost unknown territory. The illustration is an exploration into native plants in the vicinity of the cities we live in.

In August 2010 I started this Ode at window gallery De Glouw in Zaandam.
This by analysing and drawing on paper and cotton, 350 x 600 cm in a performance that lasted seventeen days. The feeling that I wanted to share with the public was the growth process of nature, when they passed by the gallery’s window.
