BYO Culture Guide August 15 - 20

This week, look at how artists explore their natural world and how it can be interpreted through their art. Artists use the natural environment to shape their understanding of their own thoughts and ideas and also as a platform to express themselves.

Sybil Curtis, Bridget Dolan, Tyler Payne

Curtis’ photography explores her travels to Antarctica and represents her feelings of isolation and insignificance. Dolan’s work considers the complex nature of human relationships and how we explore ideological divides. Payne’s Womanhours engages with the complexities of the construction of the female gender.
