Her connection with South Florida’s unique landscape and its complex relationship to both human and natural forces has been a constant influence on her work. Lehr brings the fragile qualities of nature to the fore through her use of materials. Gunpowder-burned trails as roots and blooming organic forms are juxtaposed in her visual narratives.
The creation of art within Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden offers a synergy where nature and art are intertwined. It captures the imagination of the human spirit, and ideally, we see our existence linked with nature. Lehr hopes to take the viewer into an exploratory journey capturing the spirit of the vulnerable enigma that lives amongst us.
Second Nature is influenced by the concepts of creation and destruction, the hard edge versus the soft focus, the yin and the yang, as well as the harmonious and the enigmatic."
