Looking at the phemonena of nature through abstraction is the realm of
art as well as science.
Photographer Roger Gilbert focusses
his lens on trees and discovers vast landscapes in the smallest surface
areas. For Gilbert, this is an exercise in stillness where he feels the
sacred space of something as seemingly innocuous as tree bark.
“To me the abstract nature photograph represents the mysterious, the
infinite, a beauty beyond words, a presence beyond the realm of
conscious thought,” he writes.
Gilbert’s photographs will be on display in the ROB (Bldg. 48) from
February 10 through March 10. Please join us for an opening reception on
February 10 where you can meet the artist and enjoy his work.
