Larissa Blokhuis' current body of work is an imagining of what the world will look like if it becomes as hot as it has been in the pre-historic past. The concept for each piece begins with studying depictions of ancient plant and animal life, and visualising something similarly strange yet beautiful. Tropical plants can reach immense proportions, while arctic plants are often compact and hardy. As such, Larissa plays with scale, making comparatively large versions of life forms that would be tiny in today's nature systems, and vice versa. She is always looking for pattern, repetition, and contrast, and when she finds these elements they often become the nucleus of an idea for her art.
