The aesthetics of nature
Stine Marie's driving force is a desire not only to work with nature, but to learn to understand nature through all her senses. She wants to combine the aesthetics of nature with both wonder and knowledge. In her series on decomposed leaves, she focuses on the richness of detail and the interesting in the weathered and that which is on its way to decay. The focal point of her mushroom print is both that which has not yet arisen, but also that which is, but which we do not always see.
