Beauty can often be found in small things. The artists in this reportage were inspired by their immediate surroundings, in their home and in their garden.

‘Eigen Huis & Interieur’ nr 3 May/ June 2021
When Ger-Jan de Gilde moves to the countryside after years in the Amsterdam fashion world, he is seized by a new source of inspiration: plants and leaf shapes. What starts out as photography will shift to digital drawing on a tablet in 2017. He uses these drawings to make wooden stamps, which serve as the basis for prints. And therein lies the fascinating thing, because each print naturally has its own personality.
De Gilde makes them on 180 grams paper in editions of no more than ten.
Format A2, €100. printedplant.com

-PLANTS AS A MUSE-
“PrintedPlant is the brainchild of Ger-Jan de Gilde. As a fashion designer he designed for Soap Studio, Stills, Turnover and Claudia Strater. He draws stylized plants based on his own nature photos, which he then converts into stamps by cutting them from wooden plates. This is how PrintedPlant was born. He prints his drawings on paper in various sizes and colors. 59.4 x 84 cm, € 200.”

-BOTANICAL WOODCUT PRINTS-
Fashion designer Ger-Jan de Gilde receives light, air and space on a silver platter when he moves from the city to ‘the country’. Nature becomes his source of inspiration and he starts photographing. A creative outlet next to his job for which he travels a lot to cities such as London, Paris and Hong Kong. The pictures of plants inspire him to make drawings on the iPad. In turn, those digital drawings form the basis for the wood lasered stamps with which Ger-Jan creates these beautiful botanical prints by hand.
The prints come in a limited edition (never more than 10). Size 42 x 59.4 cm costs € 100 each, www.printedplant.com See live? From April 1 to May 24 Ger-Jan will exhibit his work at De Tuinen van Mien Ruys in Dedemsvaart, the Netherlands, www.tuinenmienruys.nl
