Visions of Nature 

Online Exhibition April 25, 2024 - May 25, 2024

Artistic engagement with nature brings us near to the beginnings of art as such. These visions always capture a human presence, forming a context for people to tell stories and find meaning in the world they inhabit and, to an ever greater degree, shape. Visions of nature carry a degree of idealization: the enduring vision of a classical Arcadia, the personified worlds of animism and mythology, and site of struggle between purity and corruption. Animals, from depictions of Aurochs in early cave paintings to Picasso’s Boy Leading a Horse (1906), also speak to the highly personal yet fraught relationship between humans and other living creatures. Many of the great artists of history — Vincent van Gogh’s trees, Hokusai’s waves, Albrecht Dürer’s Rhinoceros — had a particular vision of nature that drove their work forward. Site:Brooklyn is looking for work that engages in this tradition, while developing new and innovative forms of expressions.
