Interwoven Patterns of Nature

The Art of Diana Scherer

Diana Scherer grows and cultivates her art by “planting oat and wheat seeds in soil, and then carefully, meticulously, warping the growth pattern.”, wired writes.
Organic growth transformed into aesthetic outwordly systems, structures, and patterns: “I think that people, they cherish nature, but on the other hand they are really quite cruel with nature,” Scherer says. “Like the gardener is telling us he loves nature, but the garden has to look like what he wants it to in his mind. He has to crop and prune and use poison.”

In our daily lives we just see what’s above the soil: leaves, stems and shafts, blooms. But Diana’s art shows us new grounds and worlds.
