About the artist

Herma de Wit - Orobio de Castro’s work, her bronze sculptures, objects, drawings and etchings, reveal an almost obsessive relationship with nature – the mainly isolated fragments of flora, sometimes a whole animal. Her meticulous studies and fervent interpretations of her chosen subject, a twig, a leaf or cluster of flowers, appear to be a desire to eternally capture both its power and fragility. The work is often enlarged or given an intimate scale. While one is dramatic another seems nonchalant or painfully shy. In the stillness that the artist seeks, she seems to want to create an almost human portrait. Though nature itself is not art - its creation is far beyond our imagination - looking at it can make it art.
