Los Angeles, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/08/2018 -- Now Seeking Support via Kickstarter for a high-end, signed artist's book of 80 pages of inventive collages.
A limited-edition collectors' book, Florae: Inquiries into imperceptible and observable landscapes by Karin Lanzoni is comprised of original collages depicting colorful shapes and textures of plant-life, which is found all around us to sustain us and connect us to this planet. The book offers an escape from the routine of daily life and gives the reader vibrant, wordless images to contemplate for a purely visual experience.
Karin Lanzoni is known for her unique technique with collage; she works with pen & ink and adds abstract, eye-popping paint-swatches that show sumptuous painted textures. In her first artist's book, How Painting Works, she slyly comments on color and paint with her amusing and humorous pen & ink drawings. This first, limited-edition book was collected by several museums across the United States.
Karin uses her real life experiences as well as works of other naturalists and writers as a sources of inspiration for her books, as a result, her artworks reflect a vivid awareness and respect for the environment. With her newest book, Florae, Karin hopes to inspire readers to look at everyday landscapes that they happen to encounter and observe closely the colors, shapes and textures of the flora to experience the subtle and often hidden beauty in this world.
