Last Friday was the debut of the Canopy Guild project, a collaborative group exhibition from NLS artist-in-residence Rodell Warner. Contributors Afifa Aza, Ai Yoshida, Ayana Riviere, Di-Andre C. Davis, Leasho Johnson and Storm Saulter utilized Warner’s digital patterns created from nature photographs to create pieces in their own medium. Thanks to these images courtesy of NLS we are able to share the end result: a collection of video, graphic and tailored art manifested in various eccentric ways from Warner’s nature images.
