The Aether series examines how we look to nature make sense of the departure from the known to the unknown. The palette is pulled from the subtle power at the end of a fire, glowing orange and ochre embers, deep grays and blues masking hazy heat, and the sense of energy settling back in to the earth. Similarly, withered leaves, twisting stems, dried flower heads, and seedpods reflect the beauty of exhalation and inevitable return to the earth. The “x” in the titles denotes a variable that is lost or let go from one incarnation to the next.
