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.

About The Artist
She works in a variety of mediums including oil, acrylic, pen and ink, charcoal, and various printing techniques.
She often finds that creating an image is like telling a story from another's perspective - one with a strange and emotionally charged imagination filled with as much horror as humor, peace and balance.
Such is the perspective of science, which despite it's tendency to disagree with our sensibilities, does not require one to believe in it in order to exist. It is horror, humor, peace and balance at once.
