The intersection of the natural world and humankind is key to Sonja Schenk’s artistic practice, which explores this convergence through a variety of forms: painting, sculpture, installation, and time-based media. She is interested in geography, anthropology, the future of humanity and how these elements reflect on modern life. Much of Schenk’s work is site specific, utilizing research of the area to create individualized projects that in her words, “fit[s] a place.”
