Strange Natures

Work by Melissa Brown, Fritz Horstman, Joseph Smolinski, Anahita Vossoughi, and the collaborative team of Johannes DeYoung and Natalie Westbrook.

Curated by Clint Jukkala.

 
Taking landscape imagery and natural forms as their subjects, these artists present images that are far from everyday and familiar. Instead, they reveal strange worlds filled with aberrant forms, odd behaviors and unusual occurrences.
