Illustrator Zoe Keller‘s absorbing, hyperdetailed odes to the natural world are rendered in graphite and ink. The Portland-based artist uses landscapes, field guides, and her own memories to source the varied flora and fauna that appear in her works. The artist says that she blends “hints of narrative” into her natural explorations.
Oregon based artist Zoe Keller and Michigan based Christina Mrozik each enhance the beauty of nature in their drawings. Their graphite drawings take inspiration from natural forms and creatures, recreating them in highly stylized compositions. The pair have embraced their stylistic similarities by collaborating together on a new exhibition at Portland’s Antler Gallery. Titled “Intricacies”, their exhibition renders nature with intricate detail in an elaborate narrative featuring flora and fauna.
