Alyssa Fanning

Alyssa Fanning makes art about the strength and fragility of the natural world. Her intimate, small-scale drawings in graphite, charcoal, or colored pencil on paper—from a series titled After the Disaster—invite close viewing and reveal miniature worlds that connect the microscopic with the macroscopic. Delicately rendered through a labor-intensive process that combines improvisation with perceptual observation, these drawings depict disasters and triumphs through imagined landscapes (and/or mindscapes) that are personal, cultural, and ecological in scope.
