Palm leaf photographic artwork

During Lockdown in 2020, Marianne looked out of her window and saw the patterns of exotic leaves of the Chusan palm. Marianne reflected that plant explorers brought  the Chusan palm from exotic parts of the world such as China. Garden owners thought it a luxury to bring plants from overseas.  Everyone thought there would be only a positive impact.  Thus Marianne reflected that human activity today is  not much different.  Consequently Marianne created the Chusan palm leaf photographic artwork. She used old and new techniques to make the work.

To make the palm leaf photographic artwork she harnessed digital photographic methods as well as used one of the first photographic techniques. Thus, Marianne created deep blue evocations of land and sea. She experimented with double layered exposures of the leaves of the Chusan palm. Her work resulted in a series of artworks containing strange organic abstracted hints at the worlds of science, technology and nature.
