ON DISPLAY: New artwork by Sandra Griffin
I believe an artist’s highest calling is to convey the messages that she/he finds most compelling. I look at our planet and fear that our path is leading us to a less-than-happy ending. Yet I still see the promise of the future in the eyes of children and in the unfolding of spring-green leaves and the songs of birds and insects.
My “Not War” series of prints depicts multiple alternatives to war –- because there are infinite alternatives and we are limited only by our imagination. Conflicting stories arise from our interactions with the natural world and with each other. We hear storylines such as: We are doomed! All things are possible! These ways are not sustainable! Everything is unfolding in perfection!
What to believe? Our imagination and intuition can help us find our way.
We have many challenges that must be confronted and addressed. I believe answers will come if enough of us ask the right questions. We can turn to the Earth or to its wild denizens with this question, “What is it that you ask of me?”
When I ask this of Mother Earth, her answer is, “Create. Share your art.” And who am I to argue with my Mother?
