Experience the work of two Skagit Valley artists Natalie Niblack and Ann Chadwick Reid, who create work about marine and forest environments of the Northwest by challenging viewers to see how the world is impacted by human activity. Anthropocene refers to the current geological age, during which human activity has been the dominant influence on climate and environment. Using traditional media of painting, prints, and cut paper both artists celebrate the complexity of these landscapes while questioning their survivability as climate change inevitably, and perhaps irrevocably, alters the world around us.
Intricately cut black paper installations by Reid, address the impact of human activities on whole ecosystems and individual species. Her elegant black and white designs bare striking contrast to Niblack's color-intense oil paintings and prints of pipeline/oil train explosions and ocean debris. Niblack's work directly questions our dependence on oil and plastics. Drawing the viewer into their work by identifying the beauty that is inherent in both the destruction of and revelation of nature. On the Edge: Living in the Anthropocene
