A Distant Land is a demonstration of Botke’s decorative talent. The surreal flattening of the landscape and the complex pattern formed by her precision brushwork reminds the viewer of her background as a tapestry cartoonist. The vivid coloration is characteristic of her very individual and evocative style.
