“Gingkos Dream” is one of my first experiments of printing with real plants. The leafs of Gingko and Coltsfoot are inked up via a counterprint procedure and then placed on a painted copperplate and printed again. The rollers were used like a painter uses his brush. The Ginkgo is a Chinese tree whose leaves are used in traditional medicine and whose nuts and seeds are used in cooking.
The symbolic meaning of the Gingko is as follows
Considered a living fossil, the ginkgo tree has no known living relatives and has endured for millions of years with little change. In fact, ginkgo is the oldest surviving species of tree known to exist, with a botanical history spanning more than 200 million years. This demonstration of resilience, combined with its antiquity, has granted the tree many symbolic meanings throughout the world. It has become a symbol of strength, hope and peace for many.
