T. KLACSMANN “HABITAT” Solo Exhibition -Chatham, NY

Artist Statement

My work offers an alternative perspective to viewpoints that see animals and the environment primarily in terms of their usefulness to human-kind. I try to capture the consciousness of animals as they exist independently from, but intermingled with humanity. I marble paper to create variable and unique surfaces, then transform the paper into landscapes, and finally add linocut prints of animals. In every scene, I include evidence of human habitation such as vehicles, trash, or architecture to show how land and animals are inextricably linked to human consumption and also exist independently from human’s ability to extract use from them. Within the work, I try to balance the beauty I see with ominous forces I also encounter in the world around me.
