Historical Context:
"I use the natural world of plants, animals and landscapes as a means to investigate the relationship that exists between nature, me and other humans. I choose printmaking and drawing as venues of bringing a sensitive awareness to myself and my community about our natural world. Through abstraction and rendering, via line and color I try to communicate the connection I have with the land and animals in a way that will be seen as both curious and playful. My goal as an artist is to create imagery which reawakens the observer's interest in nature and encourages rapprochement and exploration in the natural world." -Shilin Hora
