In her intricate watercolor paintings, Laura Ball portrays a colorful tangle of creatures that weave their way into our consciousness. She charts a course through our dreams and memories to environmental values long neglected. Ball reminds us that nature is an interconnected whole more valuable than the sum of its parts. In “Red Wolf,” we see a critically endangered species, endemic to the southeastern United States. Red wolves were nearly driven to extinction by aggressive predator-eradication measures. Ongoing efforts to reintroduce captive-bred populations into the wild have faced numerous challenges.
