Adrienne Slane, an Ohio-based artist creates hand-cut collages and cyanotypes that combine images largely of plants, insects, animals, human anatomy, and planets whose diverse sources range from the 1500s to mid-1900s.

The subject matter and composition of her work is inspired curiosity cabinets, traditional women’s craft such as folk quilts and paper silhouettes, and other religious iconography. Her collages and prints celebrate the beauty and interconnectivity of the universe in a time when our environment is in crisis. Adrienne says, “My work celebrates the beauty and interconnectivity of the universe in a time when our environment is in crisis. It draws its imagery from a wealth of illustrations that encouraged exploration, wonder, and appreciation of nature in decades past. It also honors a history of craft practiced by women who were largely denied the opportunity to seriously pursue the recognized fine arts. These women cut and gathered scraps of fabric and paper to create images that reflected their daily lives, their environment, and their folk histories. The decorative, ephemeral, and meditative qualities of old, Christian reliquaries and Eastern mandalas is also reflected in my work, where each individual element works to create a whole.”
