“Leave it to a map to unmap” — Marianne Boruch
This painting is part of a series exploring the unpredictable ways that riparian systems and oceanic systems are shifting in response to climate change. The constant flux, tumult, and re-calibration of these systems offer valuable lessons for our time.
This series explores the contemporary sublime: a sense of imminent and overwhelming loss nested alongside profound and overwhelming beauty.
Enormous gratitude to the Sitka Center for Art + Ecology, where this series was born.
