Fish Outta Water
Fish Outta Water is a solo exhibition by the artist Johanna Aenderl, showcasing her large-scale trace monotype drawings and animated shorts. Full of texture and spontaneous mark-making, the work is representational. Through observed drawings and found objects, this series is rooted in places intimately known to the artist (Brooklyn and Midwestern wetlands). Aenderl’s work attends to the nonhuman world in these places by noticing the details, changes, and relationships. By merging observational drawing with metaphor, these composites highlight the impact and reliance humanity has on the natural world.
