Undergrowth is a full color, hand-drawn and digitally colored/printed hand-bound 8 in x 10 in book by Sunny Nestler. Edition of 200. All copies are numbered and signed. Features text by A. A. Spencer and Sasha J. Langford.
Sunny Nestler is a grateful and uninvited wandering queer Jew on unceded Coast Salish territories belonging to the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaʔɬ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations. Nestler’s visual art practice is rooted in drawing, and studies mechanisms of biological life using a process that mimics DNA replication and mutation. Their subject matter cross-pollinates ecological processes, for example the growth of an organism, or the changing interpretation of scientific gender markers.
Nestler’s past work includes collaborative animation, community-led arts programming, a recent municipal commission, as well as thirteen years of managing community bike shops. Nestler sits on the board of UNIT/PITT Society for Art and Critical Awareness and teaches art and science classes at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
