Portfolio > Elegy

"Elegy" began as a response to the death of my mother, Carol England, then expanded to an elegy for all beings. Impermanence is our foundation. It allows the unfolding of life, enabling us to grow and change, to love and hate, to learn and forget. It is a source of sorrow and also holds the possibility of deep tranquility and peace. When honestly confronted, impermanence wakes us from our forgetful slumber to the profound beauty and mystery of life. It is this mysterious beauty that lies between joy and sorrow that is the subject of "Elegy". This work was part of a two person exhibition, "Ana England and Steven Finke: Imminence" at the Weston Gallery, Aronoff Center for the Arts in 2013.
