REVIEW: Dornith Doherty at the Impressions Gallery, Bradford, UK

November 4, 2020 - Giovanna L. Costantini for Leonardo

The artwork, in the words of the writer Julio Cortázar, “is like the seed in which the giant tree lies sleeping.” From sunflower to rosehip, there may be no more metonymic sign for art than the seed, an embryonic kernel whose formation is part of vegetal reproduction that generates sustenance for life. Plants, the fruition of the seed, share with photography a light-driven process of development corresponding to photosynthesis. Imperiled by environmental circumstances, a photographic exhibition,“Seedscapes: Future-Proofing Nature” currently on display at the Impressions Gallery in Bradford, England, examines the response of artists to global conditions that threaten seed viability and the survival of ecosystems that allow all forms of life to prosper....

REVIEW: Dornith Doherty at the Dayton Art Institute

November 3, 2020 - Susan Byrnes of WYSO's Culture Couch

In my hand I’m holding a random assortment of seeds I collected from a recent walk in a prairie. If I hadn’t collected them myself, I might think they were tiny specks of dry, broken grass or leaves. I might not even see them at all, they appear so insignificant, like dust or lint from the inner reaches of a pocket. 

In a new exhibit at the Dayton Art Institute called “Archiving Eden”, photographer Dornith Doherty turns her lens to the critical issue of seed saving, and global efforts to conserve the world’s food sources. Her compositions use Xrays of seeds and plants along with documentary images from facilities around the world working to sustain the planet’s biodiversity...

REVIEW: Joan Winter in Modern Dallas

July 16, 2020 - Todd Camplin

On July 21st, Holly Johnson Gallery will be celebrating 15 years with an all-women artists exhibition. Another milestone is that the gallery had its longest-running show. Joan Winter had art on the wall from early May to the present and the art will be coming down on August 8th. With such a long-running show, it would be a shame to miss it. I find it easy to call or email the gallery to make an appointment. I urge you to contact the gallery and get out of the house. Art Galleries are social distancing destinations. A place you can visit and still feel safe. This is your moment to have a private art visit, take it...

REVIEW: Anna Bogatin Ott in Visual Art Source

This exhibition of Anna Bogatin Ott’s recent paintings is luscious. Her abstract pieces build a surface through repetitive markings in strong colors that culminate in an image that engages with light, bound within a tantric rhythm....
