So here I am about 6 weeks away from the opening reception, still pondering how to relay the show's theme to an audience on a daily basis. With the artists and works pretty much set for the show- creating and refining just the right language has been an exciting challenge. Knowing myself, the final language will come along in the next few weeks, but I’m happy with where it’s at for now.
CONCEPT: Attempting to make sense of the world around us is in our nature. We venture out into the deepest oceans and climb the tallest mountains to take notes, make maps and collect data. The marks we accumulate from these pursuits and discoveries are not without their own implications; we also leave marks of ourselves in nature’s landscapes. From the minuscule to the extreme, we leave behind everything from unobtrusive ski tracks to devastating oil spills. Human+Nature is an exploration of how artists have captured these themes in their work.
