The third painting in my new artwork series. “Lupita Listens to a Turtle’s Story.”
About the artwork series:
This artwork series is made possible by a grant from the BeWildReWild Fund at Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation. While her most recently completed artwork series, A Childhood in Nature, focused on her past, Emily Lupita’s current art project will tell the story of a vision for the future. Told from the perspective of her signature “Lupita” character, the series will focus on entities in the Iowa natural world who are beyond human, and the way humans interact – or could interact – with these entities. The paintings will be the basis for an art book, which Emily will write and publish, that will further convey this vision.
