Lorena Salcedo-Watson

"Based on a fascination with human anatomy, botany, and entomology, my images transform and interpret aspects of nature; filtering through personal experience, observation, and imagination. I am interested in revealing our relationship to the world as a part of an open, living system, embracing ambiguities in nature's architecture."
