…is the title of an album by Rhiannon Giddens that I've been listening to over and over in the studio. The idea of the work immediately resonated - we make artificial separations between ourselves and other people let alone other entities living and not. Our concept of separation lets us distance ourselves from caring for each other, for animals, for plants and for the entire world. As I isolated during the pandemic and began making the work for this exhibition and for recent climate-centric curatorial projects I found myself ever more thinking about how our distance is an artificial construct that lets us protect ourselves from the consequences of not caring.  These works are about connection, about natural networks and about finding beauty in a time of stress, fear and isolation. They are a mix of media with oil paint, printmaking, encaustic and collage and a range of sizes from 8” x 8” to 20” x 40”, all on cradled panels.
