Growing Community Witnessing Waves series
48″ x 60″
Acrylic on Canvas
The Mississippi River Gorge and her wealth of heritage trees has always intrigued, inspired, and comforted me. This series pays respect to these gentle witnesses of migration and settlement along our mighty river, these magnificent, steadfast trees. The trees acknowledge the contribution of all of our respective backgrounds and ancestries. Our families have all traveled to this place, the Twin Cities. It is our collective heritage that makes our community a culturally rich and diverse place to call home. The trees welcome all, without discrimination. It is my hope that we all become like the trees
Growing Community embraces new ideas, culture, and humanity. We nurture the new, and the existing. The series is imbued with symbolism. DNA strands weave along the river banks and through the roots and ground, reminding us of our connections with all, whether it is nature or each other. The branches reach to engage and embrace. The roots remain planted, with the tacit understanding that firm foundation is essential to survival. The individual squares, thousands of squares, are our opportunities. We can choose to interact, or choose to ignore, there are a myriad of options to explore.
Growing Community has been selected by the Minnesota Museum of American Art for the exhibition Water 2020. The exhibition is scheduled for June 2021. This series, Witnessing Waves was featured on TPT/PBS Minnesota Originals in November 2018.
