MFA ’17 Fine Arts 2D
The maps I draw from are of places I grew up around or lived by, and where I learned how to interact with Nature. My work draws parallels between the impending climate condition and living as a female identifying person in the world. I give human-like qualities to the landscapes and objects I portray, through the scope of nervous system PTSD responses (Fight, Flight, Freeze and Fawn). I often utilize Pareidolia, a common human experience, as a compositional tool. It is the visual hallucination of seeing faces in inanimate objects when trying to interpret patterns of information.
