Seattle Presents Gallery

Under Earth/Below Sea

May 19 - June 10, 2015

Under Earth/Below Sea is an exploration of nature through Sara Osebold's unique lens. She describes her approach to the exhibition, "as one is compelled to delve below the surface layer of earth, perhaps a closer bond with Nature begins to form. Go further still and, perhaps, unknown, unfathomable vital components are revealed to the Searcher. Steadily, as this connection grows stronger, it becomes apparent how much more potent, expansive and surreal the mysteries are that make up sky, land, sea and the beyond. In an increasingly ravaged environment, it is a wonderful relief that this hidden deepness can continue to incubate and remain alive somewhere under the surface as well as within imaginations."
