Barbara Brown
Desire for Arcadia: Field Notes from An Art Practice

May 3–27, 2018
David Kaye Gallery
1092 Queen St W (entrance on Dovercourt)

These images invite the viewer to gaze from inside the world of green and growing plants to inhabit a forgotten place. Gone is the horizon line; without this orienting feature, the landscape is within the viewer. One can approach and inhabit these intimate earthscapes on a visceral level, experiencing and knowing them through a bodily association informed by touch. These images function as memento mori, reminding us of our ultimate destiny.
