Botany and Landscape

2015
Artwork by Ellen Driscoll

Botany and Landscape drawings include works from 2015 to 2020, such as the Soundings series, based on observation of volunteer plants in Red Hook, Brooklyn, the Siena series based on native plants used in the charcoal making process combined with non-native plants, and the Slipstream series based on plants used in bioremediation. Themes of climate change and migration are interwoven into the images.
