Turquoise Potaton Peelings
These woodblocks stand-alone and are a bird’s eye representation of mundane everyday objects. Annika Reed uses colour intuitively and has nothing in common with the innermost essence of the thing. The colours are bold, as she want them to feel alive and elevate the status of the object. This is contradicted by using the bird’s eye view, which emphasises the smallness and insignificance of the subject matter and reduces man’s comparative size to the world.
