The Nature of Women (2021)

Art She Says

On the occasion of International Women’s Day 2021, the online exhibit The Nature of Women went live on Art She Says–a platform designed to empower women artists like Crown, who innovate and break rules. Pieces by nine artists explored the ways in which women as a group relate to Mother Nature. The works selected formed a tapestry of the human psyche, the female identity, and women’s place in nature.

Perpetually evolving, growing, protecting, cultivating, expanding, and unifying, women are the threads of our social fabric, and they have the power and the responsibility to save our planet. “Melting glaciers, rising sea levels, and scorching heatwaves are already driving many species to extinction, and these damages are only increasing over time,” said curator Claudia Cheng. “The silver lining is: If human influence is the cause of climate change, we can also be the drivers of reversing it.” 

Crown contributed to this important dialog with paintings from her ASPEN MAPS series. She abstracted, layered, and rotated maps of Aspen ski trails. Using digital and analog drawing techniques and high-tech processes, she revealed bold new forms and patterns. 

Proceeds from the exhibition supported The Nature Conservancy, the global environmental organization whose mission is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends, thereby creating a world in which people and nature can thrive.
