Sonia Rentsch – Images of Guns made from Natural Materials
Artist and illustrator Sonia Rentsch often works with objects and photography to make images that exist somewhere between realism and abstraction. Earlier this year, she created a series of objects made of natural materials like seed pods, leaves, and sticks to represent the form of guns, grenades, bullets and other weapons. The series of images were titled “Harm Less,” and present both beauty, violence, as well as man and nature.
The objects were photographed for the magazine January Biannual by Albert Comper and are printed in an edition of 25. The images are simple but present big questions about the relationship of violence, nature, and man.
