Leah Evans creates textile artwork using imagery from the natural world, including satellite photography!
My current work combines aerial photography, maps, and satellite imagery. I also find myself drawn to the more minute systems of the microbial world. I enjoy the play in scale between magnified microbial life forms and remote sensing images of huge tracts of land. Both scales deal with the translation of scientific information into a visual form. At times these separate bodies of work merge. The overlap is seen in vessel-like arteries of water, tundra pools that look cellular, and microbes that swim through topographic lines.
The gallery has quilted wall hangings made by piecing, applique, needle felt technique, and a variety of embroidery stitches. Link -Thanks, Troy Cummings!
