KIM ANDERSON

Through intricately detailed drawing I explore our complicated relationship with the natural world. Interwoven with this are themes of ecological grief, solastalgia, interdependence and accountability. My drawings are based on photographs I take of myself immersed in challenging, isolated, yet wildly beautiful locations. Witnessed only by a remote-controlled camera, I undertake a private moving meditation that ranges from awe to anxiety, melancholy to solace. As I lay my face against rocks, wedge my body into impossible spaces, and seek shelter and comfort from hard stone surfaces, I feel the ineffable power and magnificence of the earth. I imagine I am within reach of an arcane knowledge that transcends our usual interactions with the landscape. At the mercy of the elements, I feel vulnerable, humbled, and insignificant in the face of nature’s vastness and resilience, yet also a deep and uneasy love for this extraordinary planet we inhabit.
