Delicate Ecologies showcases the work of painters Kelley Booze, Katherine Colborn, and Samantha Haring. The artists put us in an environment where we have the time to notice, we see how elements interact with each other and their surroundings. Sometimes using quotidian objects that occupy space or moments from prosaic and familiar environments, they make us cognizant about the relationship of space, memory and time.   

 

The paintings seem still and soft, with the appearance of the surface rendered with a sensitivity of mark and a delicate use of the medium. The artists create a quiet moment of reflection for us.
