grassy patch (2012) · 18 x 25 x 4.5 c



the modern lifestyle has deprived us of meaningful contact with wildlife and our natural environment. luckily though,
the refrigeration sections of supermarkets become home to a vast array of amazing creatures and arguably one of the
best places for close-up observation; where present-day vacuum sealing techniques allow us to keep a safe distance
from the animals, including birds, pork or beef, and bushy plants.


conceived by german artist stefanie herr, the fake styrofoam containers are made from conservation quality matboard
and photo rag, executed entirely by hand. the relief is influenced by natural landforms and habitats and named after real places.
