Karl Blossfeldt

Karl Blossfeldt (1865 –1932) was a German photographer, sculptor, teacher and artist who worked in Berlin, Germany. He is best known for his close-up photographs of plants and living things, published in 1929 as Urformen der Kunst. He was inspired, as was his father, by nature and the way in which plants grow. He believed that ‘the plant must be valued as a totally artistic and architectural structure.’

Blossfeldt’s photographs were made with a homemade camera that could magnify the subject up to 30 times its actual size, revealing details within a plant’s natural structure. His contemporaries were impressed by the abstract shapes and structures in nature that he revealed.

~To me its a perfect sample for future drawings. Unusual and neat shapes are very inspirational.~

Shayna Leib

Shayna uses the properties of glass to suggest movement in a lyrical way reminiscent of rhythm and sound, allowing art to focus on time as well as space.  “My visual concept of beauty has always been fractal,” she says. “I am intrigued by multitudes of tiny little parts, like blades of grass all bending in the wind to the same rhythm. As you pan out you have waves of form. Zoom in and you see each individual blade of grass moving to the flow of the wind.”

~An amazing art pieces that give me the sense of the power and beauty of nature~
