Clare Ross is a Canadian artist whose imaginative photographs have captured audiences and awards near and far. By reconstructing figures from the natural world, she explores the opposing desires we’ve all often felt – to be fully immersed in nature and its beauty and yet retain the many modern comforts we’ve come to love.

CONVERSATIONS WITH NATURE
Clare’s current series takes a close look at natural forms, rebuilding them after they’ve died or fallen apart. She reimagines parts of nature as if there was nothing left and human kind had to rediscover and rebuild beauty. She painstakingly constructs new and pure organic forms and then lights and photographs them in her studio, sometimes incorporating throw-away plastic as well. See seeks to answer the question: “If we destroy nature as we know it, what will we have left?”
