About The Show
Bláth, Bláth, Bláth presents a series of woodcuts prints, metal sculptural pieces and a woven tapestry, all centred around the flower motif, a universal symbol of beauty and nature. Exploring the interplay between the natural environment and the digital age, awkward and wonky flower shapes are combined with the language of emojis, computer graphics and digital iconography, creating playful sense of anxiety or tension.
The series of prints are made using separate laser-cut wood pieces which are inked and put back together, almost like a jigsaw, before printing. These are accompanied by 5 laser-cut flower sculptures in a stark black, almost like silhouettes or papercuts. The work explores the combination of digital aesthetics and analogue production techniques.
