Bullseye Projects presents a group exhibition featuring three artists who explore the natural world through mixed media installations, cast glass sculpture, and kilnformed panels.
The relationship between art and the natural world reaches back to the first marks made on cave walls. Depictions and abstractions of animals, plants, and landscapes are attempts at understanding the world around us. Since the 18th century, Romanticism has dominated our relationship with nature, teaching us that Nature is something separate from us, something we admire, save, or destroy. Timothy Morton, author of The Ecological Thought and Ecology Without Nature, suggests a new model in which we cease to view the natural world as something apart from us and argues a worldview that draws no distinction between humans and what we call nature. We are in a mesh of existence in which we are uncertain about where we are and what direction we should travel. Morton calls this view Dark Ecology. The three artists included in Dark Ecologies offer differing perspectives that emphasize the enmeshed relationship between humans and the natural world.
