Rosamund Purcell

When: April 15-July 29 2017

The Massachusetts-based artist’s photographs are at once nostalgic and violent. “An Art That Nature Makes,” now on view at BigTown Gallery’s Rochester location, shares its name with the 2015 documentary film that chronicles the seasoned photographer’s relationship to preservation and its inverse, decay. Purcell’s richly textured images of natural specimens within human-made trappings show an intense preoccupation with efforts to constrain and contain nature throughout history. In conjunction with the exhibition, An Art That Nature Makes: The Work of Rosamond Purcell will screen Sunday, July 16, at the Hopkins Center for the Arts in Hanover, N.H.
