Catherine Chalmers / BioLounge

Catherine Chalmers is a multi-media artist whose work focuses on the complex relationship between nature and culture.  Using video, photography, drawing and sculpture, her work aims to give form to the richness, as well as the brutality and indifference that often characterize our connection with animals.  She uses art as a medium to explore and expand her involvement with nature and to discover a way to broaden the cultural significance of the non-human world.
