Detailed description

Picture "In the Rustle of the Leaves" (2021) (Original / Unique piece), framed

Original painting 2021, signed. Cyanotype, acrylic, ink on canvas, stretched on stretcher frame. Stretcher frame size 120 x 100 cm (h/w). Framed in a silver-coloured solid wood shadow gap frame. Size 125 x 105 cm (h/w).

Cyanotype:
The special printing technique cyanotype makes it possible to "draw" directly with plant material. A light-sensitive solution containing iron is applied to the image carrier and dried in the dark. The artist then covers the image carrier with materials collected from nature. After exposure to sunlight, the materials are removed, and the image carrier is washed out. Afterwards, the chemical process produces the typical blue colour in the areas that were exposed. The unexposed areas remain white or grey. Finally, the artist reworks the pictures with acrylic sprayed or painted paint and accentuates light and shadow effects in this way.

About Kathrin May

Kathrin May studied textile and surface design at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee and at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, graduating as a master-class student. As a freelance designer, she creates meaningful and authentic products from scratch for well-known companies.

Her free works as a visual artist are characterised by her love and deep connection to nature. She is inspired by the infinite complexity, the reinvention and constant transformation and the perfect cycle of everything. Kathrin May is concerned with capturing the essence of nature. In her works, this results in multi-layered superimpositions, colour gradients and imprints of blossoms and leaves in various degrees of abstraction. Accidents are deliberately integrated as part of the design process. Based on this concept, Kathrin May experiments with colours, forms, structures and materials until she has found her very own truth.
