Produced to coincide with the exhibition ‘The Botanical Mind, Art, Mysticism and the Cosmic Tree’ at the Camden Arts Centre, London, Fred Tomaselli’s print Scanners (2020) highlights his interest in hallucinatory imagery and abstraction.

The work was made by placing leaves and pills onto photographic paper to achieve a photogram, which was then scanned, cut-up and painted. It presents a vortex-like arrangement of red, white and green leaves set against a black background; the result is textural, detailed and at a one-to-one scale to its original.

As in Tomaselli’s complex and vivid paintings which combine multiple layers of collage and paint, Scanner extends what the artist terms an ‘investigation of art as a perceptual modification activity […] blurring the difference between the real, the photographic and the painterly.’
