Alexis Rockman “A Natural History of Life in New York City” at Salon 94

​Beginning April 18th, Salon 94 will present A Natural History of Life in New York City, an exhibition of 75 works on paper by Alexis Rockman that adapts an unconventional, ancient technique of depicting images of flora and fauna, while referencing the straightforward approach of a naturalist’s field guide. Created with organic matter such as fossils, soil, sand and detritus gathered on streets, parks, construction sites and beaches, the artist’s field drawings depict and explore the history of life in New York City and its astonishing biodiversity. The time line spans from the ecology of the fossil record, the Carboniferous period (360 million years ago), pre-Columbian, Europeans arrival, and the plants, animals, insects, and birds that make their living here now.


By appointment only.
