One of a series of 12 large paintings demonstrating the contrast between renewable and synthetic/manufactured materials through the exploration of landscape. This portion of the series features the transition from Spring and Summer. The mountains were inspired by Banff National Park. The acrylic (manufactured) landscape was torn apart and pieced back together using wood panel, hide glue, marble gesso and handmade gouache. The silhouettes in between the pieces symbolize the earth's power to regenerate. This one features a feather floating between the cracks.
