Carving Studies – Birch/Milk Paint – Julie Benda

Family, Genus, Species

Julie Reneé Benda is an interdisciplinary artist with a practice in print, illustration, sculpture, and public art. Inspired by a vocabulary of the landscape, she uses narrative and audience participation to highlight the shifting boundaries of land, water, people, and plants. In her exhibition, “Family, Genus, Species,” she will ask, “Who will rule the Nicolet Forest in the next 100 years?” With the help of gallery attendees, Brenda will determine which will survive and which may become obsolete.
