“My work approaches what it means to be a ‘nature-lover’ in the 21st century. Through material, object, and image based propositions, I am searching for the confluence of two phenomena: our explicit ecological actuality, and our perceptual schemas of ‘nature.’ Our human conceptions of what, where, how, why, and when nature is — and is not — supplies the contextual labyrinth in which I make my work. What are these exceptional mires of conditional nature-love in which the natural can be found here but not there? How did we manage to cultivate an ethos in which to love is also to destroy?”            —Taylor Seldin-French, January 2023
