The eternal cycle of creation and decline inspires the artist MATRE to her works. She prints her monotypes using saw blades, whose own past flows into the artistic process and symbolizes this process. The experimental approach to materials corresponds with the central idea of transience – everything that is created changes, takes on a new form. And MATRE’s art makes this vivid and comprehensible with a high material appeal.
