Nature + Poetry

This work is inspired by a reverence for nature and seeing nature as an active force in our life experience.

We are a part of the natural world, not separate. The expression of nature as the subject is poetic and not a literal interpretation. The subjects exist within the ambiguity of space or circumstance. The text used comes from poems, prayers, invocations, songs, manifestos, which elevate nature, as well as, bind us to it. The intention is to evoke an inexpressible longing or memory.
