In Inundated, a solo exhibition by Artist Member Mira Cantor, the horizon and ocean waves serve as metaphors for processing contemporary issues regarding the landscape and sociology.The shoreline's unique combination of vulnerability, changeability, and power from the persistent movement of the waves proves a consistent source of inspiration for Cantor. Featuring paintings and drawings that originated during her 2016 residency at the Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughan, on the west coast of Ireland, viewers may witness a collision of beauty and anxiety in works resulting from both the artist's observation of the sea and her contemplation of the global change that she directly observed in that region.
