The Gleaner’s Song is a collection of mixed-media works, words, and photographs inspired by my daily, immersive walks in Central Park. The materials and impressions gathered on these rambles become the seeds of artworks that pay tribute to the ragged beauty of found objects in nature and honor the quiet dramas unfolding all around us.
This exhibition is my love song to the NYC parks and Central Park in particular. The parks have always been my refuge and have offered a nurturing and dynamic pathway for me to live in this city. It is my hope to offer these pieces as an invitation to see the possibilities of beauty all around us not just in the parks, but in the clouds in the sky, dandelions in sidewalk cracks, the buzz of insects, and pigeon’s strut.
