Laine Bachman : Second Nature December 2, 2016 - January 8, 2017 Artist Reception: Friday, Dec 2,2016, 5:30 - 8 pm At Sherrie Gallerie, 694 N. High Street Columbus, OH 43215 614-221-8580 www.sherriegallerie.com FREE parking behind the gallery ï¿¼Preview the exhibition: www.sherriegallerie.com/laine-bachman These works expose unique environments in which I explore and pay homage to various forms of life I find fascinating and mysterious in nature. I use vast landscapes to showcase these life forms, showing the spaces between and the surfaces above and below. The worlds I create are hidden and untouched by man, and give the viewer a glimpse into the secret lives of their peculiar inhabitants. There are many niches with animals hiding within the work that might not be noticed at first glance. Whether it's a desert, forest, or coral reef I include a variety of plants and animals that could reside in those realms. Through the process of creating these intricate realms, I've become more instinctive and intuitive in the way I approach my paintings, almost as if this new body of work is my 'Second Nature.' -Laine Bachman Born in 1974, Laine Bachman grew up in Southwest Ohio.
