the way of ink ••º• is a quiet reflection on landscape and the authorship of things.  Asher meticulously activates a chain of events in conversation and collaboration with cellulose materials; chromatography paper, floral foam and writing inks. She appropriates the laboratory process ‘chromatography’ to reference cosmic evolution and the formation and topography of a landscape and acknowledges the interconnectedness between land, people and culture. Subtly, the work challenges our anthropomorphic perspective and suggests we approach our lives with greater wonder and humility towards ordinary non-human objects.
