Abstract (English)

In these selected paperworks, Sutherland uses symbols of fertility and nature derived from myth and religion to convey the image of the earth as living being. Using found natural and manufactured material and combining these with different techniques on paper, she recreates organic patterns and texture. A relationship between spirituality and ecology is suggested by the earth-forms that are produced. 10 bibl. ref.
