The Reality of Nature as an environmental macrocosm is not always the nurturing, restorative, spiritual, user-friendly place one imagines; nor is it the heroic antidote to civilization as fetishized by our self-critical, urbane society. Nature is not only mankind’s victim but also its source and master. It is full of wonder. It loves its children but also takes revenge. Coming to Launch LA on September 9, thirteen Los Angeles artists, working a variety of media explore the conflicts and confluences between what we want and what we have when it comes to living in a world the belongs to both Man and Nature.
Participating Artists: Andrea Bersaglieri, Catherine Ruane, Constance Mallinson, Devon Tsuno, Erika Lizée, Jeanne Dunn, Jennifer Gunlock, JJ L’Heureux, Marie Thibeault, Samantha Fields, Steve Seleska, Terry Arena, Virginia Katz
