Now Showing: “The Elements: eARTh”

The Elements: eARTh @ Gallery725

A MultiMedia Exhibit

Opens March 22nd, 2013


The Elements: eARTh

Time changes things, and everything changes within itself. The ‘Theory of the Five Elements’ is an observation of natural, creative changes; the natural world confirming that all forces and energies in nature can be in constant smooth and harmonious transition from one phase to another – just as one season ‘becomes’ the next.

Over the next year Gallery725 will showcase a series of visual art shows focusing on

“The Theory of the Five Elements”

Be a part of it from the beginning:

Artists will be on hand to discuss works with collectors and admirers.

In this exhibition both artists present their own specific understanding of nature in relation with identity.

Ken presents the notion of being unique as an individual through the use of different natural elements.

Maya seeks to explore the relationship humans have with natural environments.

Her landscape photography touches on the delicate balance of man and nature and questions where one begins and the other ends.
