Journal: Behind the scenes of "Tending Mass": Thumbnail

We go behind the scenes with Debora Cheyenne as they prepare for Tending Mass, a two-person exhibition with Angel Oloshove. Debora's newest collection of oil paintings and digitally rendered pigment prints explore the interdependence of plant life through the illustration of speculative hyperorganisms and observed botanical structures.

Hyperorganism is the exposure scene, presenting all our characters. In Hyperorganism we observe the interdependence of one organism for another.

In Tending Mass, Debora draws on the sentient quality of the natural world’s self-maintained order to discuss themes of bonding, support, compassion, and community that extend beyond the Plantae kingdom. Her work asks: what does it mean to live together and how might we create our own structures of support and meaningful connection? How can we come together to function as a collective superorganism?

Debora's work builds a bridge between virtual and physical realities, exploring what lies at the crossroad of opposite worlds, states, and energies.
