Snow and Elm explores the polarities of landscape: the observer and the observed, the subject/object relationship. The piece is inspired by a very large elm tree in my backyard when I learned that this species was going extinct in the area. In the winter, snow gently piled on its expansive branches and it took on a luminosity that was utterly mysterious and ancient. What within us, the observers of such landscape, reaches out and resonates with our environment? Here there is no subject or object, only a oneness gathering together the life of both what is born and what is passing away.
