Trees and swift water, the best thing on earth, Diptych, oil, 2019, each 36 x 36”

(I envisioned Endangered as an exhibition about our disconnection from nature and the inevitable tragic outcome, a continuation of Seton’s warnings. The invited artists created a variety of responses. Intended for the walls of the Seton Gallery, the show is presented in a series of blog postings. Images and text copyright belong to the individual artists. dlw)

In an interview at her studio on January 14, 2020, Marsha Skinner told me that Endangered suggested to her both what is being lost and what we might save, “The difference between sorrow and hope.” The theme for the two paintings in this set comes from Nobel Prize winner Czeslaw Milosz, New and Collected Poems: 1931-2001, in a poem, “The Wall of the Museum.”
