Featuring work by Julia Lucey, Luis Bivar, Meredith Nemirov, Minas Halaj, and Marco Grassi, “Garden of Eden’s” lush ensemble of botanical and floral motifs explores the confluence of landscape and portraiture. Working in collage, Julia Lucey, Luis Bivar, and Minas Halaj each utilize their own unique arsenals of media - from traditional found collage materials, to handmade prints and evocative textural elements - to capture imaginative portraits of nature. Meredith Nemirov’s charismatic gouache and ink drawings of aspen invite the viewer to imagine personality in nature through a more subdued palette. The bold, figurative work of Marco Grassi confronts us with the symbolic role of the female figure in depictions of nature. “Garden of Eden” is a visually stunning assemblage that examines the humanity in nature and the elements of nature embedded within us.
