Brooklyn-based Kathleen Vance seeks to capture a part of nature untouched by humans. In the series Traveling Landscapes, her fastidious sculptures playfully combine suitcases with miniaturized living landscapes of grandiose scale. Streams and rivers course through and activate the seemingly familiar terrains of rolling hills and densely treed grasslands. Rogue Stream is a site-specific installation based on the St. Johns River in Jacksonville.
