Devoted to the flora and fauna of the rainforest, Nature's Toolbox exhibition artist Isabella Kirkland paints exacting representations in the style of Dutch still life of the 17th century. Lush and verdant, her paintings also stand in elegy to the threatened, extinct, and newly-found species of western science. Although an artist, she is also a research associate at the California Academy of Sciences where she has documented biota in jeopardy of extinction for 20 years.
Kirkland spoke at the Ulrich Museum in the two-day symposium "Nature's Impact, Art's Force," co-hosted by the Wichita Art Museum, on Nov. 8, 2013.
