Landscapes and Prayers
January 15, 2016–March 11, 2016
Massachusetts-based photographer and educator Marky Kauffmann’s photographs are inspired by her love of nature and of the land.
In Landscapes and PrayersKauffmann’s images display a sense of peace, harmony and order, but also tension, destruction and chaos, as it exists in the natural world. “The story of these landscapes begins with my maternal grandmother, who studied the art of ikebana flower arranging while living in Japan at the end of World War II,” says Kauffmann. “As a child, I was completely captivated by my grandmother’s flower arrangements. Her use of line, shape, pattern, texture, color, symmetry and asymmetry seduced and mesmerized me. And so, as an adult, I became an arranger, too,” she says.
