Return to Daggerwing




Throughout the month of January, the art gallery features the artwork of local artist and resident Assistant Naturalist at Daggerwing Nature Center, Autumn Kioti.

"I've always had a penchant for mythology, folktales, and storytelling.  The natural world is my inroad to tell stories that address environmental and social justice issues. I use everything, from garbage scavenged along the railroad tracks in the Bronx to animal documentaries to scientific abstracts, in the creation of two- and three-dimensional art and installations, as well as poetry, programming, and performances. I often collaborate with organizations and/or individuals who work toward a similar goal in different ways: the NYC Audubon, the American Littoral Society, the Wild Bird Fund, Dr. Sara Lewis, Eric Sanderson, and now Daggerwing Nature Center!
    
My goal with FLIGHT PATTERNS [works in progress] is to explore a therapeutic connection to nature during a very disconnected time.  This particular collection includes embroidered cyanotypes and poetry as well as ink and watercolor work.  It is my wildest hope that my work as a naturalist and artist will help to connect individuals with the natural world regardless of wealth, privilege, physical ability, or easy access to green space.* And maybe create a little magic and silliness too."
