The Hour of Land: A Book by Terry Tempest Williams

I am very honored to have one of my mixed media sculptures, Grand Canyon, reproduced on page 362 of The Hour of Land: A Personal Topography of America’s National Parks by Terry Tempest Williams, one of my favorite authors. Her words have deeply shaped my thinking about land, nature, body and art.

There was an exhibit celebrating Terry’s book in June-July 2016, at EUQINOMprojects in San Francisco, CA.  For this show, I created a new Bottle Dreams piece (pictured below), called Shearwaters, which features photographs of the Sooty Shearwaters that migrate off the coast of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.
