Nature and technology have never really hit it off, perhaps because it is a universal human folly to believe that if enough technology is applied to any situation, nature can be brought under control.

The five Louisiana artists in this exhibition express through their work some of the implications of this deep-seated conflict. Daphne Loney is one of these artists.

Originally from Gulfport, Mississippi, Daphne Loney now lives and works in New Orleans. She received her MFA from University of New Orleans in 2002. She is a co-founder of Good Children Gallery in New Orleans.
