New Geologic Epoch Publication
I am delighted to be included in Ecoartspace's book 'The New Geologic Epoch'.
For this exhibition, member artists/scientists illuminate the transformations that have led us to the current human epoch, now referred to as the Anthropocene.
The New Geologic Epoch presents work relating to or commenting on geological transformations in the land including commentary on previous works by Earth or Land artists. The works reference our evolution leading to the precarious situation we find ourselves in today with massive scarring of the planet's surfaces due to mining and the impacts of the built environment with the development of dams, bridges, roads, and sprawling urban cities. Works include a wide range of media with drawings, watercolors, collage, textile, sculpture, ceramic, painting, photography, sound, video, film, installation, performative, and eco-remediation.
The New Geologic Epoch captures the shifting baselines in the landscape, which over time have become the new normal.
"Narratives of Time culminates in the alchemical embrace of an anagama kiln firing in Devon. After being woodfired, Harriet’s pieces become an offering to the elements that birthed them, merging with the essence of fire and ash, thus completing the circle of creation and surrender."
