Mary Oliver

“It doesn’t have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few
small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
a few words together and don’t try
to make them elaborate, this isn’t
a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence in which
another voice may speak.”

Martyn Thompson

A piece from Martyn's Plant Life series.

Martyn recently curated Made By Hand, a delightful group exhibition devoted to contemporary work that celebrates a sense of craft, authorship and authenticity. According to Martyn’s blurb in the program: The exponential growth of technology has also spawned its antithesis - a revival of craft - an elevation of handiwork to a fine art.
