The notion of whether people are shaped by “nature versus nurture” is a long-running debate in the world of psychology and beyond. Those who side with “nature” say our behavior is a product of our biology. Conversely, people on the “nurture” side believe our environment and our learned experiences are our greatest influence. Artist and designer Olaus Linn’s debut solo show bears the title Nature Versus Nurture. The show, comprised of woodblock prints, marks a shift in mediums for Linn. He is a graphic designer and head of Sharp Eye Deer, a branding and design studio. That means his normal canvas is a digital one, or that of print publications, like the Best of Jackson Hole 2019 edition and Jackson Hole Snowboarder Magazine. Ahead of the show’s opening on Friday, April 5 at The Rose, Linn discussed how “nature versus nurture” pertains to this show and his entrance into a new medium.
