A critical balance in the environment is being upset by human activity. The work of Annette Goodfriend, Ruth Tabancay, and Esther Traugot addresses the fragile interplay between the natural world, science, and humans.

Annette Goodfriend uses epoxy, steel, and rubber for her sculpture, playing with surreal narratives of the challenged oceanic world, where starfish grow fingers to claw their way out of warming waters, human parts become inextricably linked to dying aquatic flora and fauna, and an ambulatory kelp forest strides through the gallery.

Ruth Tabancay focuses on environmental issues and ecological systems. Using materials as varied as tea bags, thread, yarn, beeswax, and sugar, she weaves and stitches microorganisms digesting plastic, bleaching of coral reefs, and observes the bacteria that is on us and in us.

Esther Traugot explores the fragility of nature. Stitching with her own hand-dyed golden threads, she crochets wrappings in and around found natural objects—bees, trees, urchins—nurturing, protecting, and making them whole again.

Each of the three artists’ work examines the changes to our natural world and the need for humans to better care for the planet’s creatures.
