Oceans and ice: arctic light

Work from high arctic travels in Canada and Greenland in 2018 and 2023. Oil on linen, acrylic on panel.

Tim Robinson, an Irish artist/mapmaker wrote a description of experiencing the land that resonates deeply with my practice.

While walking the land, I am the pen on the paper; while drawing this map,my pen is myself walking the land. I wanted to short circuit the polarities of objectivity and subjectivity, and try keep faith with reality.

Sustainable cultivation, sovereignty, and climate remediation issues prompt my ongoing desire to “keep faith” artistically in various media with my experience of the arctic.

An awareness of arctic fragility and beauty, and the urgent need for climate response compel my works: a mode of response to move the heart to knowledge and action.
