ImagesAnnabelle Aylmer, b. 1947 Detroit, Michigan
Lives and works in Altadena, California

Aylmer’s multidisciplinary art practice, drawings, sculptures, installations and performances often deal with the relationship of biology to an environment defined by the results of an increasingly complex culture of technology and its effects on memory, permanence and the drive to discover meaning.

Scientific and epistemological processes inform the fabrications that reflect these ideas in each specific environment. Aylmer often refers back to the gesture of ‘organic’ processes in an attempt to relate the rationality of science and mechanical technology to meaning that is rooted in the vulnerability of the flesh.
