Aasheim, Emilie Skogstad

Drawing, natural dyeing

My drawings can be characterized as serial growth studies, each new work being part of a larger whole. I tend to cover entire paper surfaces with minutious lines, occasionally resembling a sort of vegetative or even mycelial mat. Key to my practice is the exploration of various growth patterns; studying both the repetitive and the almost self-organizing; furthermore, a bit of etymological rumination, particularly on terms from natural sciences. Biodiversity, recurring patterns in nature, and most of all, everything fungal, are subjects that interest me. Parallel with drawing, I also experiment with the extraction of dyes from fungal and plant material.
