Fern's artwork focuses on their queer identity, mental illness, and trauma, and how these relate to a larger context of their environment and community. They find immense healing in nature and honor that in their work. They aim to help people like them feel heard, seen, and understood, by radicalizing the normal. Their use of a childlike, at times surrealist, style helps them digest the "normalness" of big issues surrounding queerness, mental health, and the many forms grief can take.
Gallery ABBA represents students, alumni, and faculty of Beloit College and is located in central downtown Beloit, WI.
