This project took shape during the summer of 2016. I was parting again with some of my mandrakes. This time each root was accompanied by a hand-drawn illustration, depicting the root.
The drawings are done with India ink and ink pen on ripped paper, which has been stained to give the works an aged look and provide a background texture. Attention is paid to the peculiar shape and features of each root. The result are realistic portraits, which are not only unique pieces of fine art but which also give the owner a reference, whenst the roots are planted back into soil.
