Kirsten Furlong is a drawing and installation artist from Boise, Idaho, who is interested in depicting meaningful instances of human, plant and animal interactions that clarify and epitomize our impact on the natural world. Her elegiac drawings communicate a sense of loss and longing. Her work is supremely detailed and carefully executed, which gives it a sense of respect and reverence. Furlong’s drawings are a moving and sensitive chronicle of the environmental catastrophe that is the Anthropocene.
