Garage Gallery—Original Species

April 9 @ 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Paintings by Laura Gurton and photographs by Daniel Kariko. Opening reception, April 9th, 4–7 pm.

Laura Gurton’s paintings move us through space, from explosions in a distant universe to the inner structures of living things. Drops of paint ripple out to create individual cells, which aggregate into tissues suggesting microscopic views of an unknown species. It’s a familiar pattern, like raindrops striking water, but one made unique by her controlled compositions and lush colors.

The well-known species in Daniel Kariko’s photographs live among us in our homes and gardens. Usually too small to attract much notice, insects are among the oldest and most diverse living organisms on the planet. Still recognizable from when they first emerged from the primordial ooze, many are now threatened with extinction, which in turn threatens entire ecosystems. Integrating images from conventional and electron-scanning microscopes, Kariko creates luminous portraits of these extraordinary creatures, hoping to provoke a discussion about their impact on our environment, and ultimately, about our species’ impact on theirs.
