Project: Nature offers a sneak peek of the current VanGo! Museum on Wheels exhibition Nature in Art, which features the work of Victoria Fuller. Fuller is a Chicago-based painter, sculptor, and natural science illustrator. Her work explores the interconnectedness of human and natural systems. Fuller purposefully constructs sculptures that resemble instructional museum displays so that their concepts are accessible, playful, and instructive.
“Re-creating parts of nature lets me study their subject, discovering how a beehive functions, which insects feed on milkweed plants, or our planet’s location in the galaxy. . . . In learning to treat the planet with reverence and respect, we may – as a species – continue to survive.”
