This body of work is entered around the etheric * nature of plants and in particular, trees. Luminous describes the levity inherent in the life forces of growth, as well as the presence of death, seen in the deep gravity of fall when the dying of the light reveals all form. In such observations the sacred is revealed in the now and in what is real. I rejoice in the plants and spaces around me . They are unspeakably precious.
*etheric ORIGIN late Middle English: from Old French, or via Latin from Greek aithēr ‘upper air’, from the base of aithein ‘burn, shine’. Originally the word denoted a substance believed to occupy space beyond the sphere of the moon.
