Oh my goodness, I am in love. San Franciscan artist Aubrey Learner has an MFA in fine art and a BS in biology, and the combined loves mashup to create something truly stunning:
watercolor on paper 23×38 inches
watercolor on paper 17.75×30.25
ink, graphite on paper 36″x24″
milk and honey
watercolor on paper 33×41 inches
Acrylic and ink on paper 48.75×45.25 inches
Her intricate drawings include insects, silk, candy, pins, lace and parasites. They arouse both disgust and desire; smaller perhaps disturbing bits making up a beautiful, larger whole. More images in her online portfolio, here. Ugh, she is so good!!
