Drawing

As a woman and an artist I identify with the myth of Persephone. Like her, I find wisdom in the dark places. “River Library” is a series of drawings made on paper with sediment from some of the Earth’s major rivers. Mud embodies the earth’s history, functioning like text to provide a trace, a memory of its existence. The process I use reenacts this history, for the drawings have their source in chaos, in the unformed darkness of mud. They develop by unfolding from disorder into order and form. The layering of sediment in the drawings parallels the formation of sediment in the depths of the rivers. Mud contains life, death, and stuff, encompassing the unwritten history of nature and culture. Ancient civilizations inscribed their histories on tablets they made with the sediment from the rivers alongside which they settled.

“River Library” – as both a metaphor of and a witness to our history – echoes and embodies those first libraries.
