The latest work of Martina Lang is as playful as it is abstract. Working solely with paper and plants, the art series is appropriately titled 'Paper/Plant.' As simple as the name and series looks, it's clear that much more went behind each scene. From the careful curves of the paper to the strategic cutouts and specific plants chosen, everything works flawlessly together.
Shot against a white backdrop, Martina Lang's images involve pastel sheets that contrast beautifully with the green of the plants. Essentially playing a game of hide and seek, the plants peek behind or through the paper, giving the whole series a fun feeling. It was exhibited at East London Photomonth and is represented by New York based gallery Uprise Art.
