Daniela Fainis

In Daniela Fainis’ herbariums, made from manually shaped China clay, drawn and slit with coloured pigments and cobalt oxide, bundles of line suggest rods of plants broken and pressed so as to endure despite their typological precariousness; as in the most coveted pieces of amber bearing within them traces of times gone by (remember that for such precious materials a veritable road – a king’s road, in fact, was traced centuries ago, as was in the case of silk, but in another direction), these parietal objects have from time to time fostered the survival of fragile stalks or inflorescences.
