Carol Bouyoucos  
Mt. Kisco, New York. 

I shoot with an iPhone then manipulate my photographs using various in-phone apps. The final retouching and composition happens in Photoshop. I work with various materials like archival rag paper, acrylic, silk, wax, and reclaimed wood as a device to remove the work from a solely photographic conversation.

I am inspired by early American and European landscape, and botanical art, as works by Thomas Cole, Maria Sibylla Merian, and Robert John Thornton illustrate.  Weaving historical imagery into the narrative embeds a feeling of nostalgia for nature, whereas working within a digital platform suggests that there is a changing truth to the environmental story.  My practice has always been shaped by technology. I embrace the aesthetic tension that digital materiality imposes on the work to redefine it and offer new questions about it. Environmental and social borderlines are conflicted today, but history has taught us that contemplating nature can compel humanity to work toward change. The natural world is ferocious, rebellious and fascinating!
