"Becca Nison is a maker, word crafter, and investigator of sensations within the self and surroundings. Lavender in a treasure chest, mint leaves refracting light from a water vase, abundant colors tiling the floor - Becca's sensitive exploration of the physical world adds an element of eloquence to raw reality. Looking inward and outward, the body becomes a sensational landscape; the belly button as a portal, anatomy as arching curves, fingers and toes as delicate grounding points."
