Detail Description

These works developed from the series 'Clouds'. Bibi Smit became excited about the beauty of simplicity, like an individual fragment of nature. The title 'Maru Mori’ means ‘the heartbreaking simplicity of ordinary things', which connects with how we can get so much joy from a tulip petal that fell down on the table, for example.

The work has a stillness and quietness about it, and Smit found the poetry of the title to have the same feeling.
