Invasive Urban Captures
Jennifer Celio Depicts Nature's Struggle Against Urbanization

By: Andrew Robertson (Star) Apr 22, 12

Jennifer Celio uses the juxtaposition between natural and manmade surroundings to illustrate the invasive tendencies of modern urbanization. Without blatantly depicting nature as being “under-siege” by modernity, the artist instead captures the imbalance created when nature tries to reclaim or adapt to urban expansion.

In one illustration, Jennifer Celio draws a swarm of bats rushing out of an industrial storage unit. The image calls forth the idea of bats rushing out of a dark cave, and disrupts that visual reflection by imposing a building where a cave should be.

Other images depict what would normally be a tranquil environment despite the abundance of industrial installations. Celio’s use of oil pump-jacks becomes particularly disruptive when treated as a common neighborhood accessory on par with street lights.
