This group exhibit explores seven artists’ perceptions of altering natural experiences, all achieved and conveyed through a variety of mediums and stylistic approaches.

Karin Schminke’s experimentation with laser cutting has been led to larger art works cut from plywood and metal. The screens reflect her interest in natural processes such as flow, growth or synergy, and use a vocabulary of forms based on her drawings. Light plays a critical role as the screens are installed floating several inches in front of the wall to allow the art to interact with its own cast shadow. The complexity of the resulting interplay is reminiscent of direct experiences of nature as both the changing light of the day and the position of the viewer effects what is seen.
