Watercolor, gouache, collage on paper | 2017
The Fynbos works delve deeper into Karamallis’s curiosity with the landscape and nature of South Africa. Feeling isolated and disconnected while visiting a lagoon, the artist absorbs and notes details in the scenes surrounding her, specifically the forms, colors and movements of the fynbos plant, a flora abundant through the area and unique to the Western Cape.
Integral to her work, Karamallis’s use of mixed media collage incorporates paper of varying textures and thickness created from repurposed watercolors, painted paper and digitally designed patterns inspired by Persian tiles representative of her Middle Eastern heritage. The addition of mixed media of varying texture and thickness, creates a unique depth and intricacy to her watercolors.
