09-04-2018 12:00:00 18-05-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Human Nature Curator Tom Kotik will work with a select group of artists who will interpret nature, or use organic forms as their inspiration in three dimensions.Human Nature features new work by Mckendree Key, Katerina Lanfranco, Kristyna and Marek Midle, John Monti, Colin O'Con, and Carolyn Salas. The exhibition is the sixth commissioned pedestal project. Nature, and our relationship to it, has been a theme in art since humans began drawing on cave walls during prehistoric times. Over the millennia, our methods of expression may have changed but our fascination with observing the natural world remains constant. Commissioned by Arts Brookfield, Human Nature presents six new works by seven contemporary artists inspired by natural landscape and the use of organic forms. Utilizing visual cues from nature, the artworks in this exhibition are distinct interpretations of our environment and the complex relationships to it. Some works utilize organic materials such as plants and natural fibers to reveal creative interactions with the earth’s resources; others rely on man-made and industrial materials, highlighting the contrast between the modern world and the idealized vision of nature we inherently possess. The vibrant and unique interpretations in Human Nature serve as visual landmarks in our perpetual quest to understand the ever-changing world that surrounds us. – Tom Kotik, curator http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=292000 Grace Building Grace Building
