2014

The gothic cathedrals of Chester and York in Northern England inspired my Gothic Forest installation at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts on the campus of South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, Washington, in March of this year. For me there is a link between the soaring columns and gothic arches in the cathedrals, and tree trunks and branches reaching up to the sky in a forest. What appeared to me initially to be impressive but austere Gothic architecture in the end seemed clearly to be an homage to the natural world, and a gateway to the spiritual.
