About: Aubrey Learner is a visual artist living and working in San Francisco. She holds a BS in Biology from the University of Akron and an MFA in fine art from the San Francisco Art Institute. Her intricate ink drawings are metaphors of desire and disgust. Juxtaposing contemporary fascinations with sexuality against the various vulgarities associated with reproduction, she explores the imposition of societal mores and the eventual decay of the body and dissolution of sexual allure. Hoards of insects stand for an infestation of anxiety, as well as a state of impending entropy, as they simultaneously form and unravel the figure.
