"Adagio" by Carra Garza
artist: CARRA GARZA
14" x 11" x 1" Mixed media – wax, oil stick, pastel, transfer and collage
Part of the online exhibition, "April Dressed in All Its Trim" with guest curator, Paula Owen
An abiding appreciation for our natural world and the role we play in it is the focus of my artistic studio practice and work. Plant and animal specimens are feral plunder. Nature is presented not only as a found object, but also as a means to explore ideas of the human condition: life, death, love, cruelty, isolation and resilience. The process of image capture is detailed and direct. It presents even the most modest flora on equal terms, which calls into question our perceived ascendancy.
Layers of wax, oil stick, pastel, transfer and collage are employed as symbols of the change and unpredictability that occurs as the natural world journeys through a continuous passage of seasons and time. Our existence with the environment is meant to be a collaborative one. The singular motivation of nature to adapt for its survival provides keys to our preservation as well.
