Simone Albers makes collage-like paintings and drawings exploring the natural world. She gets inspired by the cosmos and all its wonders and investigates the subject through reading books and watching documentaries in order to understand more about the world around her. Fascinated by the complexity of existence, she combines different theories and pictures to create new layered, sometimes fragmented images. Her work reveals her discoveries by presenting all kinds of landscapes, in the broadest sense of the word, combined with geometric or abstract shapes. These shapes are cut out, pasted on or enwoven with the scene or are used as a frame to show the structures, processes and mechanismsthat lay underneath the surface.
