about the artist

having studied graphic arts in her native vienna, as well as new york, boston, san francisco and london, sylvia moritz has developed a fascination of urban environments. observations of these surroundings play a vital role in shaping the direction of her practice.

sylvia's meticulous etchings creatively document the unpredictable nature of urban expansion, whilst underpinning the incomprehensible detail of cityscapes.

about the artwork

before elevators, climbing trees or hiking mountains were the only ways to see the world at large. before conveyor belts and tarmac highways we felt grass beneath our feet. we progress with technologies provisions, but despite our wires and our networks we’ve lost contact with the bare necessities of life.

where previous works in the citysphere series depicted the urban sprawl, ‘necessity’ turns its attention to the rural sprawl, and performs the wonderful resilience of the natural world. it reminds us that to ensure a fruitful life for all, seeds must be planted, and our biodiverse ecosystems preserved. the unquestionable beauty of nature is a necessary yin to our vast industrial yang – and we mustn’t forget what this planet was before we called it earth.

this is an limited edition of 10 print of an original etching, printed on 300 gsm somerset paper. 

delivery

the print is available for an international delivery from vienna, austria at an additional p&p cost of £15.
