Cicadian Symmetries: The Art of Aubrey Learner

Aubrey Learner‘s incredibly realistic, detailed drawings are intriguing studies in precision and subtly disturbing grotesqueness. Reminiscent of naturalist illustrations, her imagery combines inorganic elements such as scissors, ribbons, corset lacing, and female undergarments, with insects, leeches, butterflies, snails, and worms. These cryptic, symbolic compositions have the abstruse mystery of installations, and evoke a jarring sense of repulsion and juxtaposition.
