Jaime Johnson : UNTAMED

DATE
Fri, Apr 3, 2015
TIME
6:00pm - 8:00pm

"Untamed chronicles the intimate relationship of a feral woman and her surrounding natural environment. She collects the bones, branches, and flora of her world and treads with the animals, both dead and living. The cyanotype process shifts focus from potentially colorful landscapes and figures to patterns, textures, and the relationships of forms within the images. Discovery—both psychological and physical— reveals each of us is a part of a shared experience. Untamed ultimately reflects upon the forms, the impermanence, and the interconnectedness of nature’s life."

Come meet the artist who created these incredible images as tea stained cyanotypes on the most delicate rice paper. Her work has received national attention and was most recently published in "Don't Take Pictures."
