Illustration. Art. Books
The contemporary art of Gitta Pardoel changed from soft landscapes with minimal human interferences towards more detailed works showing different perspectives of plants and nature in a broader scense. Working with different media the fragillity but also the flexibility and strength of nature inspires her in the last few years. The intervention of humans in nature shows often, with a little understanding and care, the vigor of nature itself. She says:" We have to let nature itself finds the balance. We are namely too part of nature." The decrease of biodiversity and the state of our environment is in a questionable state. The combination of native and cultivated flower, the production of all kind of natural goods demand carefulness and respect from men towards nature. The so important balance is all ready disturbed.
Among the works of Gitta Pardoel's art you can find paintings, drawings and assemblage's with flowers, plants, wood and other materials.
Art is a way of dealing with this disturbing truth and at the same time the beauty of nature overwhelming in some ways.
