Icons of Nature – Sirpa Pajunen-Moghissi

Sirpa’s mixed media, multi layered collages combine drawing, printmaking, painting, photography and found imagery, built up on a birch wood surface. Rejecting any hierarchy of discipline, Sirpa has developed a uniquely individual approach, referencing both time honoured techniques and her own creative digital image making processes.

The result is that, on the surface, the ideas for Sirpa’s work are rooted in the past, but the techniques she uses bring them to the forefront of contemporary image making, moulding the past into the present whilst asking us to be vigilant in the way we step forward.  As society begins to face up to the damage it has wrought on the planet, Sirpa’s work – with its symphony of colour, gold leaf and pattern, and its layering of images from nature – encourages us to celebrate and hold precious now  her icons from the natural world.
