Of the Spirit

Ritual and other facets of "spirituality" are major aspects of the human experience. From the beginning of recorded time, humans have used earthly elements to explore and express their spirituality. We harvest foods for rites and religious celebrations, use raw materials to depict the invisible, mark and protect the sacred places we discover or build. My series "Holy Ground" depicts places where I experienced an undeniable presence of history and sacred ritual. The series "Psalms as Ancient Poetry" uses images from nature that define and describe the God of the Israelites.
