Artist in Residence – Rachel Rozanski

ARTIST IN RESIDENCE: Rachel Rozanski is a Canadian artist whose recent works contain themes of natural history, urban biodiversity and decay. Interested in the creative potential of disintegration, she draws objects and organisms that have become unidentifiable. “My work centers around the dramatic rate of biological, geological and material transformations occurring as we enter the Anthropocene. I am interested in how we understand and visualise unpredictable material lifespans or effects.” Her drawings at NES have been inspired by the dramatic environment, extremes in weather and found objects deposited by the ocean.
