Plants and Places by Angie Lewin

I focus on insignificant plants that are often considered to be weeds. Their structure is as interesting as that of exotic specimens in a botanic gardens. ...My inspiration has and always will come from the seemingly infinite variety of plants and an intimate knowledge of how they grow together. (Angie Lewin)

In her recently published work Plants and Places her over 80 hugely popular prints , together with collages, textile designs, drawings and paintings from her sketchbooks are brought together for the very first time.Angie Lewis mostly works in lithography, wood engraving and screenpainting.
