Noticing unique geological features and colors, expansive skies and plants in specific locations throughout the western states, Lisa Flowers Ross lets nature dominate her Field Studies series and translates her observations with hand dyed fabrics reminiscent of the sites she visited. Whether she is using the warm reds of Zion National Park or the soothing blues of Californian waters, the colors set the scene. With stitching, she creates texture and depth that juxtapose the strong, flat hues and shapes, and enhances the tactile nature of each piece. Viewers will notice that no manmade structures are depicted in the work. Flowers Ross instead focused on “places that are undisturbed by humans, hoping the viewer is reminded of the beauty and importance of nature and encouraged to preserve our wonderful national parks, wildlife preserves and natural areas whose protections are currently in question. Nature is important to our well-being.” Runs Through: April 1, 2020 Event is free and open to the public.
