Into the woods

Mei Chow's avatar Mei Chow

Work Statement: Nature has always been my sanctuary, which is reflected in this year’s painting. While nature abounds throughout the globe, these sanctuaries are increasing threatened by modern living, whether it is through global warming, unfettered development of natural resources, urban sprawl, over use of these natural resources or unthinking consumption of the products available to us. Naysayers try to delay efforts to conserve our precious resources and outposts of nature. Nevertheless, increasing numbers of people recognize the terrible impact person-kind is making and are doing something to stem the flow. Despite the infringements into our natural world, nature seems to reveal itself. The grandeur of nature also reveals itself in nature preserves in West Michigan and in a stream or woods which might not be far away.
