DESCRIPTION

 Natural Worlds features the work of six Los Angeles area artists whose work is anchored by relationships to the natural world. These artists find inspiration in both micro and macrocosms of our planet. Erika Lizée and Jill Sykes works depict the intricacies of foliage and plant life while Arpiné Shakhbandaryan shows us the earth marked by geo-political boundaries. Joe Merrell's video captures the natural world in unexpected ways, making us see nature through the artist's distinct lens. Andrea Raft's collaged canvases incorporate the photographs of Aaron Sedway and for Charla Puryear nature is a partner in each piece she creates using frottage to transfer textures and surfaces to her canvases. Through drawing, painting, collage, and video the viewer is invited to reconsider the world in which we live and to see and appreciate the detail and meaning that these artists so adeptly expose.
