The Air We Breathe at Beacon Gallery

The Air We Breathe, is a collection of new paintings and sculptures that explore how seagrass, cyanobacteria and algae in the oceans gives us 70% of our oxygen. 

This solo exhibition at Beacon Gallery will be on view from November 3 to January 8, 2023 and will focus on the importance and fragility of seagrass and its role within our ecosystem, particularly how seagrass preservation is connected to our everyday lifestyle decisions, through a series of abstract paintings and sculptures.
