Cicadian Symmetries: The Art of Aubrey Learner

Aubrey Learner’s incredibly realistic drawings are intriguing studies in precision and subtle repulsion. Reminiscent of naturalist illustrations, her imagery combines inorganic elements such as scissors, ribbons, corset lacing, and feminine undergarments, with insects, leeches, butterflies, snails, and worms. These beautifully detailed compositions have a mysterious and jarring sense of juxtaposition.
