Captured Nature

Apr 24, 2014  -  Jul 10, 2014

The theme of the show focuses on each individual’s critical perspectives arising from and reflecting on their use of natural surroundings. “There are things known and there are things unknown and in between those are the doors of perception.” (Huxley) “If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite” (Blake). The works selected for this exhibition demonstrate the artist as active perceiver entwined in a role played by the body as catalyst for perception. The reflections of self entail a totality not merely about that which is inside the skin, but an integrated total environment. “If we don’t experience ourselves in this way, we mistreat our environment. We treat it as an enemy. We try to beat it into submission, and if we do that comes disaster” (Watts).

Stefano Bosis and Roland Kunos are the joint curators for "CAPTURE NATURE"
