Edges

 

Moon rises

grass sways

earth turns.

 

Beauty points

to the edges

of the dark,

the light,

the wild.

 

This is the

landscape

of change.

Edges: An Intimate Exploration into the Landscape of Change

These pieces were created during the days, months and years that change navigated me after the loss of both of my parents within a few months of each other.  I found myself driven to nature, to be outside, to walk in and around the landscapes of Oregon and Colorado. Through the process of looking at the natural world I found solace and peace. At a time when beauty often seemed elusive, I began to notice in the tangles of brambles and grasses beside the paths I walked. The immense capacity that nature has to give meaning to life and death at the same time.

 

This was a non-linear process, unplanned or scripted, I drew and wrote myself through and in response to what I was seeing - the edges of beauty and decay. In my notes and sketches I was drawn to the small grasses and weeds that were often discarded and there found an intimate glimpse of the ordinary and the extraordinary at once. The delicate fringe of Queen Anne’s Lace and the arch of Meadow grasses were ever moving, ever changing, ever resilient, ever graceful. These were my places of refuge, healing and hope.
