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.
