All mediums are welcome.

Ellen Rosenholtz’s graphite on paper series explores native flora and fauna of New Jersey. The work looks at the profound beauty of natural forms as it exists within animals and plants. The multiplicity of images underscore the interconnection of living systems, while geometric patterning enable the viewer to identify each of the species through repetition of form.
