Artist Michelle McKinney creates ethereal nature-inspired art using an unexpected medium: industrial metals. McKinney hand cuts ultra-fine woven metal into large-scale artworks that recreate forms and symbols found in nature. From butterfly wings to autumn leaves, each delicate piece is crafted with such finesse that it’s nearly impossible to detect the provenance of her industrial materials.
