i first saw alicia lachance's work at melanee cooper gallery when todd and i were in chicago last year. i love her sense of color, texture and pattern.
...My work intends to create a story of continuity between the past and present by collaging small bits of, what I consider contemporary graphic symbolism with nature references. This lexicon is meant to bridge the healthy, tangibility of nature with a certain positivity regarding our modernity....
read her full statement here and see more work here and here.
