My current series, Between Fires, explores my changing relationship to landscape during the Covid-19 pandemic. In the past 3 years I’ve spent significant time in my backyard, and have come to appreciate how my activities there have become a primary way I mark time and derive meaning in an era of pandemic, climate disaster, and political upheaval. I’m thinking through cycles of the moon, pin oaks, and an overgrown mock orange bush. My attention has shifted to small subjects in my immediate environment that have taken on poetic or portentous qualities, creating a sort of ‘backyard mythology.’ This series explores catastrophe and routine, particularly responses to when catastrophe seems to become routine. The routine campfires my loved ones and I sit at have become a way to mark life happening between an endlessly dire series of current events.
