Born in Anchorage, Alaska, Athena LaTocha is an artist whose massive works on paper explore the relationship between human-made and natural worlds. The artist incorporates materials such as ink, lead, earth, and wood while looking at mark making and displacement of materials by industrial equipment and natural events. LaTocha’s process is about being immersed in her environments and responding to the storied and, at times, traumatic cultural histories that are rooted in place.
