Detail: HARU by Maria Shell
Metamorphosis generates transformative change in shape, nature, or structure. Animals physically develop and change from birth to maturity. Concepts and ideas morph and change over time. Even the earth’s landscape progresses through many geological and ecological stages.
Change may be positive, negative, frightening, or enlightening. The pieces in this exhibition demonstrate the inevitability of change—physical, philosophical, or personal — and the results of such transformations, no matter how subtle.
