A selection of poetic and whimsical flora and fauna illustrative paintings by Los Angeles-based artist Teagan White. Her works are “influenced by years of living in the bleak Midwest and Great Lakes region, burying roadkill, traveling by bike, and working with wildlife”.
Teagan White is an artist and outsider naturalist devoted to the flora and fauna of a planet in decline. Their delicate gouache and watercolor paintings and intricate line drawings lament the fraught relationship between humans and the rest of the Earth, and explore the tenderness and brutality that coexist in all of Nature. Through muted colors, ornamental layouts, and meticulous detail, the work asks viewers to look beyond aesthetic appeal or scientific dogma, and allow compassion and intuition to guide their interpretation.Teagan White
