Add To Cart

This publication presents 37 charcoal, pastel and oil pastel drawings of roses created by Cologne-based artist Sabine Moritz between 2004 and 2009. The drawings are accompanied by poems by Adam Zagajewski and William Blake.

With a regularity that approaches an everyday activity, Moritz makes studies of flowers in her home and studio – in part as a discipline to practise and explore observation and techniques of representation, in part a way to reflect, contemplate and simply enjoy the flowers. These studies are an important aspect of Moritz’s wider practice, which addresses themes such as man and nature, man and machine, and the military and the landscape.
