Transcendent Nature

Transcendent Nature

Poets, writers and artists have referenced nature and its positive inspiration for centuries. I believe today more than ever in our media driven lives only nature can save us. As an ex-city-dweller gone feral, I find comfort in nature, security in her seclusion and a sense of belonging in her most remote reaches.

For me, it is there, in that transcendent place separated from the rest of the chaotic world where a wholly liberating escape truly occurs. I am absorbed by a heightened sense of awareness that seems to engulf me when alone in her grasp. Mainly autobiographical, I often highlight a single figure or a natural scene without manmade elements mirroring the significance of isolation essential to portraying the intimate, contemplative escape I both occupy and honor when alone in nature.
