About this title

Synopsis:

This full color catalogue from an impressive museum exhibition of Mara Adamitz Scrupe's art installations, creates an eco-universe that combines the fields of art, science, anthropology, and cultural history. As she takes us to lost, neglected, and forgotten places, Scrupe suggests new ways to make art that expands our vision of the world. The artist's close-ups of nature's systems and processes let us observe nature's built-in, competing strategies. By focusing on paradigms of nature and culture at specific, historic sites and by choosing to focus on work that, intentionally or coincidentally, is loaded with beauty, Scrupe turns art into a giant lens that may be, simply, something to behold. - excerpted from "Lessons from the Earth", catalogue essay by Jan Garden Castro
