Historical Context:
My work exalts nature to the high position it once held; as a powerful, life giving force. By invoking the familiar figure of Mother Earth as a personification of nature, I strive to humanize these disconnected worlds. Sanctifying her with a golden halo, I elevate nature away from a commodity to be exploited unchecked to a diverse entity, to be revered and sustained. By provoking curiosity the viewer is driven to search for what is hidden. The detailed environments growing on each goddess figure implores for a closer look. to realize that there is always more than meets the eye, and that even the small things hold their own importance." - Linnea Songer
