Lewis deSoto: Arbor/Ardor

Chandra Cerrito Contemporary/Oakland

In a range of photographic and video works spanning three decades, deSoto explores the relationship between the human body and nature, through acts of performance and site-specific standing meditation. Some of deSoto's images consider human impacts on the environment, or the essential connection between man and nature, while others allude to the sustenance and humility that deep observation of the landscape provides.

This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about Lewis deSoto: Arbor/Ardor :

Presented alongside a second solo exhibition by Sarah Bird, a former student of deSotos’ in the ’90s at CCA, this work takes a close look at the natural landscape, offering subtle and essential commentary on the environment in a time when its protections are at risk. The visual complexity of exposed tree roots, a byproduct of the drought, reflects real human impact on the planet.
