Destructive yet often elegant, tornadoes demonstrate the immense power and beauty of nature. In John Brosio’s paintings, they serve as a metaphor for life’s unpredictability and humankind’s vulnerability and complacence in the face of danger. His paintings pose questions about the relationship between humans and the natural environment in the 21st century. Brosio has gained a deep understanding of his subject through field research and storm chasing trips in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and California.
