Ashley Cecil is a Pittsburgh-based artist specializing in paintings of flora, fauna, and the female figure that illustrate the interconnectedness of the natural world and its inhabitants.
"In an age when people are often far removed from nature, that distance threatens the very life nature supports. The aim of my work is to welcome you back to it, to nurture your biophilia.
Visits to sterile science labs, musty natural history museum collections, and pristine ecosystems have mended my own severed connection to nature. My studio, a sort of hybrid lab, is where these varied sources of inspiration coalesce into artworks that are reflections on what I’ve learned about our measured impact on nature and what that means to be a mother of two young residents of this ailing planet.
My tedious study and visual representation of birds, beetles, fungi, and more intends to draw us closer to those individual parts that play an integral role in the wellbeing of our shared environment."
