Dreamcatchers at the Louisiana Art and Science Museum, March 2018

“Egan’s digital blooms recall the long tradition of botanical art, or art that relates to plants….artists such as Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) illustrated all aspects of a plant’s form, from seedling to bud and bloom, not only to produce an aesthetic rendering but also a scientific record. Egan, by contrast, manipulates digital images of plant life in order to question how technology alters perceptions of the natural world.” – Elizabeth Weinstein
