THE ROSEMARY DUFFY LARSON GALLERY ARCHIVE

Latent Adaptations

"Latent Adaptations" features work by Jim Graham and Leigh Merrill. Graham currently teaches at the University of Arizona, and Merrill teaches at Texas A&M University-Commerce. The exhibition centers around constructed landscapes that reveal connections between environment and culture. Graham’s paintings address topics of sea level rise and adaptation, expanding on the traditions of both landscape and allegorical paintings. Merrill’s photographic digital collages depict a constructed reality of urban spaces that explore the impact of desire, simulation, and perception on contemporary landscape and reveal a culture of perpetual longing.

Diaphanous Bodies: Sarah Nguyen

Diaphanous Bodies features hand-cut fiber panels by internationally exhibiting artist Sarah Nguyen. Her intricate compositions include symbolic motif—flora, fauna, and an ever-changing moon—to elicit childhood memories of myths, fables, and folklore. These large panels interact with the gallery space, casting shadows that thrust the imagery out of the two-dimensional picture plane, bringing her visual stories into our own reality.

When the Bough Breaks

Organized by Suzanne Slavick, "When the Bough Breaks" is a collection of paintings accompanied by poetry and the written word that embrace the tree — materially and conceptually — through figure and metaphor, analysis and allegory, and as record and reflection. Facing ongoing human conflict and impending climate catastrophe, the reality or representation of trees can offer solace and space — for the necessity of talking and listening.
