Megan Diddie _ pollen settles on her face under the tree of heaven

Megan Diddie (b. 1985, U.S.)
pollen settles on her face under the tree of heaven
Note about the medium:
This colored pencil drawing was done on handmade paper. I worked at Fresh Press Paper Laboratory in Champaign-Urbana for a little over two years making paper with different agricultural materials. The paper for this drawing was made with sunflowers I grew in my yard as well as recycled black cotton paper. I called this batch of paper Black Sunflower. This piece is part of a series about spring allergies and the plants that grow along the sidewalks and roadsides in Chicago.
12" x 9"

Megan Diddie has had two solo exhibitions at Anno Domini; April 2009, and November 2013. Diddie was also featured in the international four person exhibition "Glimmer" in April 2011.

About the Artist
Megan Diddie is a visual artist working with mixed media on paper, video, animation, artist books, and zines. She has a curatorial practice running Final Resting Place gallery with Tim Hogan. In her art practice human physiology, plants, systems, landscape, and digestion are some of the threads that cycle through her work. She aims to capture the idea that in hope there is both complexity and darkness; which for her inspires a more nuanced and honest examination of the human world.
