This book is a reflection of an interest I have in buildings, signs and other objects that jut up into the Tucson skyline. These structures inspire me, catch my attention and invoke a comfortable sort of curiosity. I find most of these human made forms speak to the history, landscape, biological communities and people of my southwest home town, Tucson.
Artist BioJo Andersen lives in the Tucson Mountains just outside of Tucson, Arizona. Her work is an honoring of places, plants and animals of the Sonoran Desert. Jo Andersen's art explores the deeper issues of water shortages, human expansion on critical habitats, and what we may lose to our current overly consumptive lifestyles. Jo remains curious in her respectful approach to what was, is and could be our shared future.
