 Sarah Beth Goncarova explores in painting the human impact on the modern landscape. Featured in this exhibition is her “Wake Project” series, juxtaposing imagery of the aftermaths of major eco-disasters against paintings of the everyday landscape, whose apparent beauty belies deep trauma from mankind's encroachment. While showing the severity of the human impact on the landscape, at the same time, the paintings invite further speculation as the effects are literally beneath the surface.

 A portion of the proceeds of sales from Sarah Beth’s “Wake Project” series benefits non-profits supporting disaster relief and environmental clean-up.
