Through the exploration of visual myth-making Larissa Monique Hauck (she/her) expands on concepts surrounding femininity, queerness, and nature as vessels for catharsis. Her ethereal drawings reflect a duality between fantasy and reality, by conjuring dream-like imagery that develops into a transformative state considering the fleeting aspects of time, impermanence, and life itself. Her notional subjects evoke vulnerability and reveal a relationship between queer identity, consciousness, and nature.
