Unknowing Symbiosis: Nick Lamia

Spending more than a week immersed in natural beauty, away for the most part, from the pull of technology, makes for a difficult re-entry into the realm of satellites and social media.  We tend to forget, while living in either world that the other exists.  The abstract work of Nick Lamia reminds us that though we often think of them separately, society must coexist with the natural world in order for either to thrive.

Lamia’s juxtaposition of street map-like grids over landscape-ish scenes give us glimpses into how we integrate ourselves into nature and vice versa.

As societies, we are responsible for the care of the natural world around us.  In return, that world repays us providing food, resources, enjoyment and inspiration.

    The 1st image resembles a side view of a skull. Do you see it??

    • Now I do, Kim! Thanks for sharing your view. 😉 He has more recent work that is still beautiful, but a more subtle and neutral palette. These brilliance of the palette in these earlier pieces just called to me!
