Midnight in the Garden

Midnight in the Garden refers to both the idea of a natural garden and the garden as metaphor for beauty and joy. It reflects a deep sense of foreboding about the future of our terrestrial garden and our place within it. My process is iterative, a lengthy dialogue of gesture and response with the painting. Here, the many lush, expressive layers of acrylic, graphite, pigment and crayon have become concealed, leaving only moody traces of their passage. A dark time in the garden. My hope is to evoke pathos for the beauty that was here, and perhaps inspire better stewardship.
