Nature isn’t simply an assemblage of things—as one sees in a natural history museum—but a reflection of the ways we understanding our environment. Nature holds meaning precisely because it is an expression of ourselves. Nature surrounds us but can be elusive, and we engage in a conflicted relationship with it. We at once enshrine nature and abuse it, worship it and dismiss it. This exhibition explores our desire to connect with nature, complicated by our inclination to control it. The photographs from which the exhibited prints were created were captured in and around the Claremont foothills.
