emerging artist: Minna Graham
"I create in order to express my emotional relationship to my surroundings. I have lived in many harsh environments, deserts and salt lakes, mining areas, snow country and dense forests. These environments are defined by extreme cold and heat, floods and bushfires, strong storms and high winds. I make what I see around me- charred blackened wood and earth, mud and teeming water, moss, leaves and bark. This is reflected in the tactile nature of my work. I enjoy the simple beauty found in nature and embody this in my work."
