"Drawing on Natural Selection" by Heather Lancaster

With a deep appreciation of form and an insistent curiosity, Heather Lancaster explores intricate, sensitive, and lyrical animal gesture created over time, by varied degrees of specialization within different physical environments.  Finely tuned body mechanics, and a range of extraordinary design adaptions are carefully considered and rendered with a delicate hand.  Through her own evolving creative process, the figures begin with a single line and are slowly realized with layers of graphite, India ink, and charcoal.  Lancaster's marks and voice as a visual artist echo her admiration of the perfection attained by the marvel that is natural selection.
