Susana Reisman: Standardizing Nature
January 21 – April 23, 2017
Location: Varley Art Gallery
216 Main Street Unionville
Paired with F.H. Varley’s Second
Growth, Lynn Peak (c. 1932–1936), Susana Reisman’s
photographic series Standardizing Nature explores the
transformation of trees into building materials used in
the construction industry. With this work, Reisman
encourages us to question and understand the reasoning
and decision-making behind the 'shape' of things.
Specifically, she is concerned for the natural resources
we harness from the earth and the form, function, and
role they play in our everyday lives.
