“Dornith Doherty: Illuminations: Past, Present, and Future of Fern Research” art exhibit (Feb. 17-June 30, 2023.

The result of a two-year research-based creative affiliation with Vasco, Niño and Rehman, Doherty presents new large-scale artworks that engage with the past, chronicle the present, and project our possible ecological futures. The exhibition includes Doherty’s large-scale transparencies made from diaphanized plants collected in 1956, artworks made from images of ferns recently discovered in the tropics of Colombia, and a projection of animated genomic data from these plants.  

With these new artworks, Doherty brings to light the complex web of global scientific histories and the promising results of current day environmental research. Doherty’s work is concerned with our stewardship of the natural environment, and this new project explores the subject and the importance of present-day efforts in preserving today’s plant diversity for future generations.  

With support from: Ferns of Colombia, a grant funded by the National Science Foundation Division of Environmental Biology 2045319, and a Scholarly and Creative Activity Award from the College of Visual Arts and Design, University of North Texas.
