About Autumn Kioti
The creation and transmission of a narrative is integral to Autumn's work as an artist, naturalist and storyteller; the best kind of "going viral." Using inspirations from nature, animal documentaries and scientific studies, their own search for identity and community, and processes including botanical and traditional printmaking, collagraph, cyanotype, pen and ink, non-traditional watercolor techniques, found object art, they create two- and three-dimensional art and installation, as well as programming and performances. Past artist residencies include the NYC Audubon Society, the Santa Fe Art Institute, Art Monastery Italia (Italy), NOoSPHERE Arts, and more. Autumn currently travels South Florida with Wildness is Necessary, their art, nature, and justice program for all ages, and works as a naturalist and environmental educator. It is their wildest hope that the narratives they create bring viewers and participants closer to an understanding that humans are of nature and not separate from it, dismantling the idea of the scala naturae, and planting our feet firmly on the Earth beside our non-human brethren (and maybe creating a little magic and silliness too).
