I explore the intersection between nature and culture thorough my art. The two have been entwined throughout history since early agriculture. This recipe file box contains photographs of local produce, gardens, farms, and markets—a celebration of the abundance of our local agriculture. This is true food security. This work also examines the role of herbicides and Genetically Manipulated Organisms (GMOs) in our food supply—through images and recipes filed under “Disaster.” Pictures from the dust bowl era and my own contemporary photos of big agriculture are included in the file labeled “Disaster.”
Artist BioRobin Bachtler Cushman has photographed the intersection of nature and culture for the past 14 years. Her work has focused on exploring agriculture, horticulture, plant nurseries and the people and pollinators who make it all function. In the past three years, she has turned to making handmade artist books to get her work off the wall and into people's hands for a more intimate experience of her art. She enjoys the art of book making, but also loves the serendipity of found objects to hold her images and writing.
