Brooke Sauer is a Los Angeles based artist inspired by her innate connection to nature. With these works she strives to connect more deeply with the natural world by exploring and learning about it first-hand, and reflecting on our symbiotic connection to it. She explores our human relationship to landscape as both a physical and metaphorical terrain to be contemplated, explored, protected, and to inspire feelings of the sublime. Connectivity and eco-psychology are core concepts that drive her work, and she hopes to inspire viewers to go outside and explore their own internal landscape as they interact with and observe nature. The intimate and thoughtful moments portrayed in her work suggest that just as nature surrounds us, it is also within us. Her unique cyanotypes are created by combining a very old photographic printing process (cyanotype), with her background in painting and her love of botany and adventure. Most of her prints utilize pressed plants that she collects while hiking and exploring. She refers to her botanical collection as a “nostalgic herbarium”, as they all hold a memory and a story of a wonderful feeling, a place, and the people she was with when she collected them. This nostalgia peeks out from time to time in her work in the form of a longing or introspectiveness on the part of the figures captured within, or perhaps a yearning for a new adventure.
