A choice of work analyzing the connection between reminiscence, place, and the atmosphere by Los Angeles-based artist Madeleine Tonzi. Born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Tonzi attracts on her private recollections and experiences to replicate on our ever-changing landscapes and the affect of local weather change. A standard thread all through her work is the idea of “solastalgia” — a time period coined by environmental thinker Glenn Albrecht to explain the emotional and existential misery brought on by environmental change.

These delicate tensions invite the viewer to think about their very own contradictory relationship to their atmosphere and present local weather disaster. Take a look at extra of Tonzi’s work beneath!
