time & place for considering optimism & sunlight
April 2020. Retreating into home space, keeping within our small life, in a world full of uncertainty, awash in disturbing events. What I have is time and place; time and place to process the world, my life, our life together. Being optimistic now, savoring brilliance and small wonders of the natural world, is not the same act as before the Pandemic.
These cyanotypes – large one-of-a-kind monoprints – really the process of making them, is my way of considering and responding. Working through a way I’ve learned to think, wondering if it still serves, mourning suddenly clear limitations, finding out what it can do for me now.
