Janine Mackintosh是澳大利亚的一名独立艺术家。主要在南澳洲进行艺术实践。她收集树叶并将其进行压平,干燥,然后把他们精心的排列在画布上,装在备有玻璃的画框中。

Janine Mackintosh对被昆虫吃掉一部分,以及显示天气和季节变化的叶子感兴趣,因为它们强烈的联系了自然。她喜欢成千成百重复的,具有冲击力的视觉影像,同时她也注重差异,这关联到不同的时间和地点主题。她的工作就是一场丰富生物种类的狂欢,化腐朽为神奇,不完美到完美,单独却集群,脆弱可也持久,宁静及强大,稀有同时丰富,内涵无限,稍纵即逝但又永恒,尘世并脱俗。

Janine Mackintosh is an independent, self-represented Australian artist. Janine creates unique contemporary assemblages, mainly using found objects from her heritage bush property on the wild south coast of Kangaroo Island, South Australia. She began her art practice by employing the techniques of museum plant collections but her pieces have since departed radically from tradition.

After collecting the leaves, they are pressed and dried and sorted before being carefully placed and glued to the canvas and stitched around each stem. The artwork is then framed behind glass, to protect and preserve the leaves.

She is particularly fascinated by leaves which have been eaten by beetles or patterned by leaf-miner insects or display the effects of weather and season – as these things communicate the intricate systems and collaborations at work in Nature.

She loves the visual excitement of repetition, where hundreds, or even thousands, of objects are presented as one, yet she seeks to highlight their unique differences and introduces themes grounded in time and place.

Her work is a celebration of biodiversity and her primary motivation is to highlight conservation issues and is a joyful celebration of:
the ordinary & the miraculous;
the imperfect & the perfect;
the individual & the collective;
the fragile & the enduring;
the tranquil & the powerful;
the rare & the bountiful;
the inner & the infi nite;
the fl eeting & the eternal; and
the earthly & the celestial.
