Understanding Ceaseless Change

Visitors then proceed to Room 3, where a series of nine large Landscape Abstracts were installed.  The photographs read like paintings, that move and float with an internal rhythm.  Through the ongoing, decade-spanning creation and production of this series of photographs, Duckworth has developed a deeper awareness of the rhythms of nature. This work conveys our natural surroundings with a meditative aspect derived from both process and subject matter. Nature is ceaselessly changing, and upon further observation one can realize this ceaseless change is reflected in ourselves. “Nature is not something external, something outside of us," Duckworth explains, "We are nature, and understanding this fundamental interconnectedness evokes our natural tendency towards non-harming, of ourselves and our environment.”
