Ars Natura: Climate Swan Song

read
Karl Burkart finds the climate change symbolism in a grotesque installation by young Estonian artist.

As many of you know I am a favored target for the climate denier community, and sometimes their jabs and death threats do bother me. But most of the time I just feel sorry for them. After all they are singing their own swan song – all of ours actually. The more we delay on real energy regulation and the more the climate conspiracy community perpetuates the obfuscation of scientific reality at......read more

The Environment of the Unconscious

read
Japanese artist Chiharu Shiota contemplates the connectedness of things...visible and not.

Chiharu Shiota's spatial installations underscore the guiding principle behind nature: connectivity between things. Peter Fischer (via We Find Wildness) characterizes Shiota's work of the Osaka-born, Berlin-based artist as occupying a space between two extremes, “On the one hand, in her installations she creates a world of her own, a world delineated as a spatial entity divorced from......read more

Strange Worlds

Meticulously detailed model landscapes by Matthew Albanese.

Matthew Albanese's landscapes are so real looking, it's hard to believe they're not photos of real life scenes. The New Jersey photographer creates meticulous small-scale models that are as dramatic as any Romantic landscape painting. The strikingly realistic images are achieved through the use of various household materials - cotton for clouds, salt for waterfalls, tile grout for......read more

The Ice Woman Cometh

read
From melting ice caps to volcanic hot springs, Roni Horn's art is inspired by Iceland's shifting landscape.

New York artist Roni Horn makes sculptures, drawings, photographs, and books informed by her frequent excursions to Iceland. The island nation's volatile geology, the volcanoes and the hot springs, the ice and the sea, suffuse Horn's work, which deals with metaphors of climate change and shifting identity. In one piece, columns of glacier water harken the core samples drilled by climate......read more

Leaked Document Exposes Obama's Climate Strategy

read
Confidential memo outlines key messages the Obama administration wants to convey at UN climate talks in Mexico in November.

The Guardian has published the text a leaked document revealing the US government's increasingly controversial strategy in the global UN climate talks. The document was left on a European hotel computer and passed to the British newspaper.

Ars Natura: Ascension

read
A monumental prayer for the future.

'Senbazaru' is a particularly Japanese concept. It roughly translates as “intention” but it refers more specifically to the act of installing intention through the physical act of folding paper and stringing a row of origami creations together to make a chain of prayers. The art of origami – little known fact – has spiritual origins. It was (and still is) a means to leave a......read more

Colorful Commotion

read
In Berlin, a guerrilla 'street art' project makes unwilling artists out of cars.

Late in April, on a clear and sunny afternoon in Berlin, a group of cyclists dumped 13 gallons of non-toxic, water soluble paint in a busy city intersection. When cars drove through the intersection, their wheels became paintbrushes, creating a colorful public art piece on the streets. The whole thing took only a few seconds, and the results were caught on video. Was there an anti-car, pro-bike......read more

Ars Natura: Cauda Equina

read
Keith Bentley's hairy tribute to horses lost.

I learned several disturbing factoids when studying the work of multimedia artist Keith Bentley. First, there is actually an entire industry called “horse rendering” that turns dead and dying horses into by-products – skins, feed, glue, hair. Some argue that it is more ecologically friendly to reuse a dead animal than it is to incinerate it (which requires a huge amount of fuel and......read more

Heat Waves in a Swamp

Charles Burchfield's unique, mystical vision of nature captured in new touring retrospective.

Widely acclaimed during his lifetime, American painter Charles Ephraim Burchfield (1893 - 1967) is curiously under-appreciated today. But an ambitous new touring retrospective, curated by artist Robert Gober, may change that. HEAT WAVES IN A SWAMP, which opens in June at New York's Whitney Museum, features over one hundred works by the visionary artist. Working predominantly in watercolor,......read more

Ars Natura: The Art of Reflection

read
Yunior Marino reflects on the rhythms of nature.

A small but influential gallery in Mexico called MYTO, which helped launch Fabian Pena to MAD fame (amazing exhibit through October in New York), represents several other inspiring Latin American artists. One of my newfound favorites is Cuban Yunior Marino. Marino creates “photographic paintings” framing, cropping and assembling simple photographs of nature into epic mental......read more
