Inspired by Karl Blossfeldt’s “The Alphabet of Plants (Original Forms of Art)” from 1928, Robert Voit playfully repurposes the obsessive indexicality of natural history images in his new body of work.  These close-up photographs of artificial plants highlight the tension between nature and its mass-produced simulacra. Extending the themes of his previous series “New Trees,” Voit again blurs the distinction between the natural and the social.
