Delight in the astonishing beauty, and fragility, of the ocean’s coral reefs
View the slide show of the exhibitand delight in the astonishing beauty, and fragility, of the ocean’s coral reefs, captured in the paintings on display in “Deep Secrets.”
This solo exhibit of artwork by Artist Member Marie Krajan is inspired by her love of the ocean, and her concern for the fragile coral reef ecosystems currently under bombardment from climate change and human activity. The past 50 years has seen considerable destruction to the coral reef habitats, and immediate intervention is needed to preserve these important natural wonders for future generations. With their seemingly infinite array of shapes and colors, teeming with life, the beauty and diversity of the coral reefs provides Ms. Krajan the freedom to experiment with abstract graphic elements and a strong color palette. This exhibit highlights these unique ocean treasures and serves as a reminder to the possible tragic loss of these delicate ecosystems.
