The Seventh Year

According to Jewish tradition, every seventh year marks a sabbatical for the land. It is a time of rest and renewal for the earth when farmers are instructed to leave their fields fallow, celebrate and surrender to what nature yields. Awareness of this practice, rarely observed in modern times, inspired this series. This ongoing work explores my belief that all living things are connected and that humans are not separate from the natural world we inhabit. The notion of oneness provides comfort as I recognize the fragility and transience of life.
