The Partnership presents an exhibition of landscape paintings by Julia Purinton. Having evolved from hunter-gatherers, humans learned to think in nature. The devastation of our habitats causes distress and despair, and we naturally find solace in the experience of landscape. Utilizing a familiar vernacular of landscape imagery in her paintings, Purinton explores psychological passage and growth: finding joy, accepting loss, or releasing regret. In the way that fairy tales metaphorically dramatize real life, her paintings illuminate aspects of personal endeavor. Whether the image is a shoreline or a forest, her subject is the importance of nature as a palliative to contemporary social malaise; each piece a meditation on the commonality of human response to the majesty and beauty of the natural world.
