Now on view in the downstairs display case in the Lower Lobby is Essence of Nature, a solo exhibit featuring the artwork of Chris Bazer. The exhibit is presented by Princess Ronkonkoma Productions and sponsored by Knapp-Swezey Foundation, Inc.
About the Artwork
The exhibit features eight photographic close-ups of animals and butterflies. Bazer captures impressive details of some of his subject matters including the fox and cardinal found on the top shelf of the display case. These works give you a great understanding of the anatomical structure of the animals. In the photo of the cardinal, Bazer captures the bird resting on a small mound of snow. There is a create sense of motion in the work as the bird turns its head to the viewer’s left. Bazer captures the atmosphere in this work as his subject bunches itself up to protect itself from the frigid air.
The lower shelves of the display case feature three pictures of butterflies on flowers and one of a frog peering out of a swamp. The pictures of the butterflies offer you a great variety of colors, shapes and poses. No two flowers are the same and neither is the genus of butterfly.
