Artist Statement –
What is home under the 21st century paradigm? What is it now that we are exploring the colonization of other planets and looking to the universe to find succor for loss. Are we experiencing what we have caused so many other species to feel? Are we adapting by thinking of ourselves as other than a species of earth? And what is hope in the face of such powerful dynamics? For me hope is supporting the work to save or restore home. The Atlantic Salmon symbolizes that hope.
