A beautiful collection of studies of roses by cologne-based artist Sabine Moritz. This publication presents thirty-seven charcoal, pastel and oil pastel drawings of roses created by Cologne-based artist Sabine Moritz between 2004 and 2009. The drawings are accompanied by poems by dam Zagajewski and William Blake.With a regularity that approaches an everyday activity, Moritz makes studies of flowers in her home and studio - in part as a discipline to practice and explore observation and techniques of representation, in part a way to reflect, contemplate and simply enjoy the flowers. These studies are an important aspect of Moritz’s wider practice, which addresses themes such as man and nature, man and machine, and the military and the landscape.
