Lori Ryan is drawn to the delicate balance of nature. Her newest collection of photographs reflect a harmonious pairing of water and land in images in which the space becomes an illusion, where planes appear as one, illustrating stillness with a minimalist application.

First Friday, June 6, 6-9 p.m., the ArtWorks Gallery and Studio will hold an opening reception for Lori Ryan’s most recent body of work “In Nature, Design.”

Photographing what surrounds her, Lori simplifies form in her compositions while depicting the complexity of living earth. Her work is influenced by the Edo period of Japanese art depicting “ukioye,” the floating world. The images focus on the play between positive and negative space, water in its various forms and on occasion, the merging of man and nature.

The exhibition will be on display June 6- July 24, 2014. An artist talk will be held Friday, July 11, at 5 p.m.. For further information, please contact the gallery. ArtWorks Gallery and Studio, 503 Lackawanna Ave., Scranton, PA 18503; (570) 207-1815
