Artist Statement ~ Without Us
"The beauty of things was born before eyes and sufficient to itself; the heart-breaking beauty will remain when there is no heart to break for it.”
~ Robinson Jeffers, “Credo”
Nature forms no real boundaries; it includes and accepts all. Without the hand of mankind and its tendency to manipulate, build barriers, erect borders, manicure and impose limitations, nature is free to transform into its own intrinsic chaos, going every which way, with no hierarchy, giving equal opportunity to every life form to grow, burgeon and flourish as it can. These images are meant to celebrate and embrace the chaos, the unpredictability and abundance of nature with no boundaries, without us.
