Artist Alison Green’s mixed media encaustic works recall the artwork of historic naturalist texts, but with an abstract sensibility in which micro and macro views of flora merge. Her botanicals, informed by an interest in science, express the beauty of floral forms while also referencing their intricate biological structures. Her current work arose, in part, from the belief that the human toll on fragile ecosystems also harms the human psyche. Confluence: PLANT/LIFE, an exhibit of her work, opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Feb. 7. The show is up through March 7.
