Eight artists explore the constantly changing role of human to nature.
The eight artists in Beyond Natural are
obsessed with nature and the environment.
Furthermore, they look past the ingrained
cultural mythology of redemption and beauty
in nature as its sole aesthetic purpose. Instead,
these artists delve into and deconstruct nature,
landscape, and botanical forms in all of their
chaos, growth, human cultivation, decorative
aspects, and fantastic artificiality. Through
their artworks, these eight artists explore
the constantly changing role of human to
nature as well as our immeasurable impact
on the landscape and the environment.
