The Path of Least Resistance

plainpicture photographer Gabriela Torres Ruiz is showing her work at the exhibition THE PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE.

How can art contribute to the perception of nature in its complexity? How can it promote sensitivity and empathy for other forms of life as well as awareness for a harmonious balance between human existence and the natural world? Torres Ruiz addresses these guiding questions. Although „nature“ and „culture“ are often seen as separate – even antithetical – in the Western consciousness, Torres‘ images show that everything in this universe has a common origin.
