From the Artist:
In art and in life, I am at home in the dark. I seek out winter in its bare beauty, its deep frozen stillness, its expansive nights. Without knowing that I was asking a question, in the creation of the pieces in this collection, I encountered an answer over and over again: go north.
Winter has come to be my Polaris, my north star guide. What I see and love in the ice and darkness is also beautiful in the people I meet, and in myself. The fierce will to survive, the adaptability and resilience of creatures living and thriving in harsh conditions, is beautiful. The need to gather together for warmth and comfort– not out of weakness but because we creatures are stronger and better together–is beautiful. There is clarity that comes from the lovely, lonely solitude of darkest night, immeasurable joy in the illumination cast by a single point of light in that darkness.
