This began as a large pool of water to which I dipped and drew with the ink dropper in only a few places; then we watched their faces unfold. This piece is matted and professionally framed in a black wooden frame that is .8" deep.

Recent Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) graduate Annelise LaFlamme has a strong affinity for science. Her ink drawings and monotypes are inspired by biology, physics, and astronomy. She draws relationships between the hard sciences and human nature, and is therefore intrigued by fairytales and myths–the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of the world. Annelise describes her work as being at once horrific and humorous, familiar and unfamiliar. She uses fantastical visual metaphors to explain real behaviors. Fresh out of art school, Annelise is a young new talent living in New York.
