Kathleen Vance’s Luggage-Based Art Work Encapsulates Nat

Artist Kathleen Vance's art displays takes a creative approach to showcasing landscapes in her luggage-based art designs.

Vance’s ‘Traveling Landscapes’ features an array of miniature landscape designs that have been fit into vintage luggage pieces. The trunks are only partially opened, serving to expose only a small glimpse into the artwork contained inside. Forests and rivers are a prominent feature in her miniature landscape designs. Vance attempts to capture a part of nature that has been "untouched by humans." She used the trunks as a metaphor for how delicate and precious these organic luxuries are.

The scenic art designs encourages people to think about the fragile state of nature.
