Gallery / Suspension Series

In this series of oil paintings Juliana McDonald explores the underwater world of plants. Floating leaves, grasses and stems reflect and refract the light in ways that question what, actually, is being seen. Playing with visual perceptions, these views are a metaphor for the fragility and constant flux of nature and our sometimes tenuous relationship to it.
