Description:

Gabriella Boros’s love for narrative is derived from the rich heritage of her European parentage, Israeli childhood and American influences. The inspiration for Narrative Botanics is her love of nature and science. These five bodies of work integrate narrative elements to show the inextricable tie between plants and humans. Each series highlights plants as both visual element and utilitarian agent. The strictures of woodblock printmaking in black and white results in complex graphic images. Her prints are almost always created as a series. The truths she narrates are very personal, but the resulting images have a universal appeal.
