Cork artist who puts natural and built environment in frame

The work pictured above is by Cork artist Deirdre Frost and has the title Biophilia, reflecting the affinity between human beings and the natural world. 

The solo show by the Lavit Gallery Student of the Year 2020, online until February 28, is all about nature and our manmade environment. 

Using shapes and structures from discarded cardboard packaging she investigates the experience of the individual in the built environment and examines our relationship with the natural world through this prism.
