New work

Inspired by photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto who used light as a pigment to create a new kind of painting, Herma uses the iris-print technique

to create an image of dawn. She carefully selects inks and by the act

of making an iris-print draws unexpected alluring gradations. The transformation of these gradations are suggesting timeframes of dawn and inspire the viewer to stand still for a moment. The outcomes on

print are works shrouded in mystery.

Fossil #01

A fossil, to Herma, means a legacy of lost nature. Within her work she focusses on the research of soft fossils – remains that become visible after uncovering it, layer for layer. This unfolding method inspired her to make a ‘new fossil’. The work Fossil #01 shows the vulnerability and fragility of nature casted in a hard material. Within this solid object she wants to capture the changing nature she has been observing during her life and career as an artist.
