"Biologique: Art Inspired by Nature", a juried exhibition featuring multiple New Mexico artists ran from January 17 - February 25, 2017. A reception was open to the public on Saturday, January 28th from 5 – 7 pm.
Prospectus: Natural design is a source of infinite variety and form. It can follow complex patterns that can repeat, scale, and progress with incredible complexity and aesthetic beauty. Artists are often moved to capture the whims of Mother Nature and in the process of artistic discovery we have unearthed amazing constants such as the “Golden Mean”, the Fibonacci sequence, π(Pi), fractals, and mathematical harmony. Nature can display these in the form of storms, erosion, trees, flowers, shells, feathers, and endless other ways. Artists may depict them, whether rooted in reality or imagination, through drawing, painting, photography, or other creative methods.
