Towards the Sky Again, Dina Mitrani Gallery, Miami, 2014
An ongoing series that contemplates the notion of wilderness. Does it (still) exist? Human interaction with the natural world is mostly a mediated experience, layered with a paradoxical relationship, where we simultaneously seek to connect with and control it. Roads give access to remote vistas, artificial rock formations replicate what has been removed. Is the desire to connect with, see, or be surrounded by nature a way to reconnect with oneself? Do we find a sense of liberation or peace through nature, even if it is mediated or artificial?
