Closing Reception: Friday, August 30, 2013, 6:30 – 8:30 pm
“Our relationship exists with nature, only because we exist as well. By focusing on the fine details, rather than viewing nature in its fullness, the mind can become more in tune to a new world and a new outlook.”
Holly Lynn reconsiders how we define the term “Nature” in her constellation of photographs combining the silhouettes of the body with textures found in the environment. She states:
“Our relationship exists with nature, only because we exist as well. By focusing on the fine details, rather than viewing nature in its fullness, the mind can become more in tune to a new world and a new outlook. We are subconsciously in a web, which has always connected us with all other things. We participate in the relationship with Nature in two ways: letting it surround us, or standing from a distance. As we form a relationship with the world around us, we become involved emotionally and actively.”
The artist notes that, “We are bound to Nature.” By using digital montage to fuse shapes relating to the human form with patterns found in the landscape, she underscores our biological connection to the earth.
