Strange Forest Richmond Art Center
Exhibition Dates: June 12 – August 16, 2018
Artists: Leo Bersamina, John Casey, Masako Miki, Nora Pauwels, Lela Shields, Elizabeth Sims
“Strange Forest,” presented by the Richmond Arts Center, will feature contemporary drawings devoted to abstract and surreal dimensions of the natural world. Utilizing techniques of botanical and scientific illustration, the six Bay Area artists in the exhibition take on the role of experimental naturalists. Through processes such as painstaking delineation, classification and focus on the lifecycle, the artists express a deep respect for the flora and fauna of our planet, while at the same time reimagining it. Delineating a rock, a weed, a feather; Strange Forest examines how elements of the natural world can become microcosms for exploring the state of the earth and our place within it.

I often get asked about having prints of my work made. I’ve been reluctant in the past because I’ve seen too many poor quality digital artist prints in the world. I was introduced to fine art print house Sugar Press in Los Angeles who create museum quality fine art prints on state-of-the-art, 100% recycled paper. We chose my “Pillowed” drawing for my first release. Truly, the print quality is lovely. I am so very happy with these. You can buy yours here.
