Athena LaTocha, Untitled No. 22, 2015
Ink and shellac on paper
17 × 33.75 inches

Athena LaTocha explores the relationships between the natural world and humans’ impact upon it. Her work is inspired in part by her Native American heritage, her upbringing in rural Alaska, and minimal and conceptual Earthworks artists of the 1960s and 1970s. Her practice is influenced by human intervention upon the earth—a reworking of the natural world. LaTocha’s sweeping abstractions are created using earth-toned inks, soil, and industrial solvents that she applies to the surface using tools such as tire shreds, scrap metal, and bricks.
