“Nature is like a woman who enjoys disguising herself, and whose different disguises permit those
who study her, to hope that one day they may know the whole of her person”
— Denis Diderot
The natural world is often personified as female, and one with two faces; one, the passive and nurturing
mother, the other, wild and uncontrollable. Thus the earth, giver and supporter of life was symbolized by
woman, as was the image of nature as disorder with ‘her’ storms, droughts and other natural disasters.
What better time than Spring to celebrate, with tongue firmly in cheek, the bounty of mother nature,
in all its guises and gendered dichotomies. Participating artists explore the natural world, highlighted and complicated by the themes of artistic representations of women and nature.
