“Unseen” — the series of watercolours — were conceived after a study of illuminated manuscripts of the 17th century. They do not copy historical patterns, but they are obviously their heirs.
The picture is connected with the modern botanical painting: a white surrounding space, the floral object stands out vividly, there are no shadows and a single light source.
Why “unseen” The answer is quite simple. None of these plants have ever existed. Many of the flowers have no natural analogues, and the shape of the leaves is completely impossible. At the same time, many of them do have a fairly bright illusion of volume and realism. Only in the painting, at the whim of the artist, this previously unseen plant suddenly becomes real.
