Artist Kristina Estell condenses the notion of nature in the domestic life and creates a motley display of organized disproportion in Natural Selections by piecing together nature imagery found on commercially printed fabrics. Eagles, giraffes, stingrays and porcupines form odd relationships and imaginary scenarios within endlessly repetitive environments of sky, stone and forest. The fabric life forms come together to create a world of colorful but fragmented environments. The once idyllic imagery is reconstructed to draw attention to the peculiarly designed reality that emerges from these patterns of life and decorously inhabits the Portals on Western.
