Artist Reception : Cultivated on Dry Land
August 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Cultivated on Dry Land explores the visual relationships between land based flora and marine life. My artistic observation of such forms leads to a process of combining physical attributes of a number if species into a given sculpture, resulting in abstracted representations. I look to the manner in which certain plants and sea creatures grow and generate their structures and take note of how several visually overlap despite having no apparent common ancestry. This fascination deepened after living on Kauai, an island which offers a botanical abundance while surrounded by semi-tropical ocean life. Within this unique setting it is easy to notice qualities in common among seemingly disparate life forms. The simple beauty we observe in familiar environments repeats and expands when exploring new and unfamiliar places. I wish to share my realization of how distant species interrelate in the complex orchestration that is nature.
