Inner Forces

Aimee Lax I explore themes of attraction/repulsion, familiar/unfamiliar and other-wordliness by examining the conventions of displaying nature within our culture. Drawing is a huge contributor to this process. I do not attempt to present simulations of nature, rather the (sometimes semi-conscious) drawing process enables a deeper understanding of the essence or character of a live object, resulting in messages that celebrate artifice as well as our situations for viewing nature in a cultural construct.
