SANTA FE, N.M. - May 3, 2021 - PRLog -- Curated by Kate Ware, the New Mexico Museum of Art exhibition included are more than forty-five drawings, installations, photographs, sculpture, and video by artists Stuart Allen, Linda Alterwitz, Dan Estabrook, Brian Finke, David S. Goodsell, Cynthia Greig, Alison Keogh, Sant Khalsa, Marietta Patricia Leis, Shaun Leonardo, Tony Mobley, Jill O'Bryan, Peter Olson, Kim Richardson, Frank Rodick, Meridel Rubenstein, Don J. Usner, and Will Wilson.

Several artists approach the subject from a personal, meditative perspective while others consider the scientific and social justice ramifications, directly addressing threats to breath that have been at the forefront of public consciousness over the past year, including the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic and the use of choke-holds as a method of restraint for people of color.

Kim Richardson states, "The ocean invokes breath naturally, by the coming and going of the tide, with water comes life, primordial life. In my artistic practice I look to the natural environment as a mirror and feedback to what is happening internally and externally, consciously and unconsciously. More than ever we need to be present and aware of what is happening in the natural world around us and to open up to the joys it shares and the protection it needs. If we are disconnected to nature we miss a part of the puzzle of being human and whole".
