Currently loving Katie Scott’s work. So much so, a print is currently being ordered. Since I can’t define it any better, here is what her illustrations represent in her own words:
“I gather my interest in early science and particularly antiquity’s habit of entirely fabricating the inner workings of the world around them. I like the idea that in an age of such scientific uncertainty, anybody with enough conviction in their theory (and a well drawn diagram) could claim science for themselves, resulting in incredibly strange and peculiar scientific thought. So with this in mind, my aim was to make a book of fantasy science, with a focus on the hybridisation between different categories of nature”
Tiffany Bozic has spent the majority of her life living with and observing the intricacies of nature. Having grown up on a farm in Arkansas, she was inspired by the natural world at an early age. Her wide array of subjects are inspired both from her extensive travels to wild places, and the research specimens at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, California.
Using acrylic washes the delicate realism of her style at first masks the disturbing rawness of her portrayal of contemporary Nature. Bozic is unafraid of death, decay, sex, or deformity, and I really like her.
