This piece was made while I was in Ireland. I was working outside making many pieces, drawing the grass blowing in the wind with small clouds on the horizon. It began to drizzle, at which point I flipped this piece upside down to emphasize the huge rain clouds and continued to make pieces in the rain.

Getting to Know Annelise

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.
