Home Shows Natura Mirabilis - Group Show

At Luisa Catucci Gallery we strive to foster awareness not only of the fundamental role of nature as inspiration for art, beauty, poetry, harmony, spirituality, and all that is nourishment for the soul but also of environmental changes caused by the unnatural speed with which our society pretends to run. By engaging viewers in unexpected visual hypotheses, Natura Mirabilis offers a novel lens through which to consider the impact of human activity on our planet. What we call Earth, Nature, and the Universe can never be contained in an artwork, a combination of artworks, a word, or a combination of words.  Nevertheless, with this group exhibition, we want to pay homage to the magnificence of nature by presenting the works of different artists who in their own ways, have been strongly charmed by the infinite beauty of the Nature we are part of. Through a variety of different mediums such as painting, collage, photography, video, and sculpture, the works presented in this exhibition are concerned with the importance of our interconnectedness to the natural world, while also proposing new ways for us to co-exist with it. Man and nature, form and spirit, might be interrelated expressions of one all-encompassing whole, and we can all reach our own understanding of this wholeness by looking “deep into nature,” as Albert Einstein once suggested. Each moment provides us with an opportunity to learn from nature, to appreciate the splendor of it all, and to approach a deeper level of understanding of universal order. But without a tolerable planet to live on, where would we be? How else might we be experiencing life? Since the turn of the Millennium, world concern over environmental issues, such as pollution, global warming, species depletion, and new genetic technologies has increased. Artists have been increasingly answering collective cultural needs and developing active and practical roles in environmental and social issues... With Natura Mirabilis we want to inaugurate the first of a series of exhibition, that we will develop over the years, to contribute to a new global ecological conscience.
