After a trip to Nicaragua, Marcia Schmidt was greatly influenced by the beauty and people. In her series of paitings, she depicts the banana plant in a realistic yet abstract manner. The plant, from its beginning stage to flowering, from production to the decay, is grand and amazing. She explores the banana plant and how it is vital and integral to the country.
Leona Olausen’s series of oil paintings explore extreme close-up views of tree roots. The tree roots represent earth energy, where fertility and growth sculpt intertwining tubular forms under and above the ground. Leona is inspired and intrigued by the endless mystery of forms in nature.
