It’s funny what big ideas little objects can inspire. Take, for instance, the paintings of Lee Berger in “Indispensable dispensable - lessons to still be learned.” Works put into perspective how small the daily life of a person is — from the home they inhabit to the can dinner came from — compared to the vastness of nature. “These works posit a deep bond with our surroundings,” Berger writes, “and question whether we can release our attempt to control nature enough to let it nourish us.”
