The way Antje Duis perceives nature is strongly influenced by Zen theory, karate-do ethics and the philosophy of the Indians. This means that nature is not merely a source of “matter and form”, but also a bearer of “spirit and soul”, which turns it into a “vector of energy”. Artist Antje Duis is striving to portray exactly this link through various forms of artistic expression she uses.
