We are in a new epoch (like the dinosaurs)
- Anthropocene -
it refers to the impact of humans on our natural world.
I realized that my art reflects that.
I have gathered a still life of found objects.
Some of it is natural.
Some of it is human detritus.
chair spindles; birch bark; clam shell; dried seed pods; thread spool; beach stone; flash card; brass tray; bottle cap
All of these things will be used in my art at some point. They're things I have picked up in my natural world. Walking the dog, combing the beach, parking the car, rescued from the trash, gifted from a friend.
A modern nature walk.
A modern naturalist.
