Deep Snow Study with Ice, 2017. Monotype and intaglio on mulberry, linen, ink. 55x19”.
Collection of the North Dakota Museum of Art, Grand Forks, ND — As wetter conditions produced heavier precipitation over several winters, I considered the convergence of the disparate sentiments of joy and discomfort. Joy, in the beauty of snow cast in winter’s filtered crystalline light. Discomfort, in dealing with winter weather and its longevity, and the aftereffects of flooding in the spring. These personal, short-lived reactions were surrounded by deeper feelings of uncertainty of the effects of climate change, and the sedimentation of time and events in the larger scheme of geological and atomic time measured and reflected in vibrations of energy.
