“This silhouette portrait collection represents some of Wyoming’s non-native and invasive species. I have expanded upon the traditional cut-paper silhouette portrait with contemporary elements such as subtle cut-out features.
The historic silhouette style originates from the Victorian period and is also known as Shadow Portraits. These species are considered to be casting a shadow upon their non-native Wyoming environment while trying to meet their survival needs. Among this collection, what was explored was the type of species as well as the scale of the complex narrative between their transition of habitats.” Carrie Ida Edinger
