Borchert’s latest floral landscapes are accompanied by short poems which capture the essence of the artwork such as this poem titled “Wild Flowers”
“Here we stand together
one flower after another
dancing in the wind
caressed by the gentle breeze
In the latest floral landscapes, the objective for Borchert was to return to beauty, beauty in art – Returning to a beautiful place for the eye, mind and soul to run free in an open landscape and an open field filled with wildflowers. True beauty is what the artist sought in these works along with an exploration to open fields that are created from a deep love and appreciation for nature.
In a world that desperately needs hope, a return to beauty is definitely needed. For Borchert, these latest creations have been a sanctuary to delve into where the artist played with color allowing her spirit to run free and eventually get to a beautiful place.
The landscapes are imagined ones where memories of classical literature from the artist’s young age are recalled. Literary works such as “Wuthering Heights” by Emily Brontë have always been a great source of inspiration for the artist as a young child. Such literary works have allowed the artist’s imagination to really run free with every chapter she read as a young child. The novel has had a soft spot in the artist’s heart ever since. Moreover, in these latest floral landscapes, Borchert emphasizes on the importance of nature in one’s life. For in nature and only in nature does true beauty exist.
Furthermore, Borchert has been wholeheartedly seeking beauty lately considering how negative the news has been. In a way, similar to the Dada art movement and in reaction to the negative news, the artist decided to completely go the opposite direction with these latest artwork and introduce a genre that hasn’t been fully expressed or exhibited enough in the art-world which is the forgotten fields of floral landscapes. Borchert exclaims, “Who doesn’t remember as a child running in a flower field and experiencing absolute freedom and joy that one can only attain through such an action. For I have found through my work in art and in meditation to reach freedom, one has to seek nature and be in absolute alignment with nature to finally find that sweet spot of freedom.”
Overall, Borchert aims through the chromatic landscapes presented in the exhibition for the work to grab one intellectually on multiple levels to fully give the viewer a leap into this visual and poetic experience.
