Artist: Fawn Atencio

I explore how places tell stories, create memories, and transfer meaning. My work reflects an interest in geography and in our relationships to the places which we inhabit. Constructed landscapes are made with real, imagined, or dreamed locales in mind. I enjoy making images and objects that create a sense of abstract place, allowing for realism and abstraction to intersect. My images act as personal landmarks to my own journeys, or path traveled. They invoke memories of particular experience, mood, and quality of light, in a certain place at a specific time. The work that I make comments on, and hopefully compliments the natural world, as an impression of place at the time of its discovery.
