About the artist:
My current artistic practice engages with a series of questions about our culture’s multifaceted relationship to nature and the geography of human/animal interactions in urban and wilderness settings. These inquiries are utilized to contemplate various issues about the natural world and the concept of representation of animals and the environment. I create artworks based on first-hand observations and internal responses to objects, illustrations, and texts about various species. In the work, animals serve as emblems of nature and as metaphors for human desires.
Kirsten Furlong was born in Milwaukee, WI and currently lives and works in Boise, ID. She received a BFA from the University of Nebraska (Omaha, NE) and a MFA from Boise State University (Boise, ID). Her work explores ideas related to humans’ multifaceted relationship to the natural world and includes drawing, painting, printmaking, and installations using paper and wood. She utilizes detail, repetition and patterns inspired by those she encounters in the natural world and found in the objects, images, and texts created to describe various environments, animals, and plants. Kirsten is the director of the Visual Arts Center galleries and a lecturer in the Art Department at Boise State University, Boise, ID.

About this installation:
“Recently, I began following the story of OR-7, a male gray wolf being electronically tracked by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. In September 2011, he left his pack in the Wallowas Mountains and traveled over 1000 miles from eastern to western Oregon and into the state of California. OR-7 was the first confirmed wolf in California since 1924. In the early summer of 2014, OR-7 was photographed in the company of a female wolf in the Cascade Mountains and soon after, pups were also photographed in this area – the first wolf pups to be bred in this area in a century. I was inspired by OR-7’s story of perseverance to make this artwork in the summer of 2014. This wolf, for me, is a symbol of the beauty and importance of wilderness.”
