American artist Ashley Hope Carlisle uses sculpture, drawing, and installation to explore an imaginary world that contains a crossover between human and plant-like conformations. Her work often references flowers whether native or exotic, trees, and root systems fictitiously enhanced to speak about connections we as humans share with each other and with the world around us. The seeds from these plants have become a central theme in her work that serve as a launching point for metaphors about the human endeavor, protection, escape, and change.
