The Great Lakes A Spiritual Connection

2012 ArtPrize Entry

My particular interest is in finding and expressing the connections between humans and our natural world. We live in a world in which we view Man as supreme but one in which we are totally dependent on a living earth. This view is out of balance and leads to abuse and misuse of our environment. My images are intended to help restore some appreciation of the need for that balance. This series of photographs from lakes Superior and Michigan is intended to cause us to examine our connections to those lakes on a deeper level, to see these waters as abstractions and metaphor for our own spiritual existence. Titles are: 1. Spirit Waters: 26"H x 40"W, 2. Shining Big Sea Water: 29"H x 40"W, 3. Sunset, Lake Michigan: 22"H x 40"W, 4. The Lake at Rest: 26"H x 40"W
