With large scale paintings, Cynthia Fuhrer proposes a mythical framework for the depiction of human beings in the wild, connected and responsible to a diverse community of plant and animal inhabitants.

Human presence is juxtaposed in a natural setting with mythical animals where children stand with fortitude alongside sacred creatures, sharing the burdens of a history that is left to them. The subjects are depicted as guardians of a shared landscape, invoking a positive coexistence and perhaps a glimpse into a sustainable future.

Experience this exhibition on at the Touchstones Gallery, June 12 through August 7.
