LAURA PETROVICH CHENEY
On my walks, I find meaning and connection through the observance and intimate awareness of the places I inhabit. As I breathe in the air and feel the sunlight, I feel as tall as the trees that surround me in the woods. The aesthetic promise of a tree’s imperfections – its twisted limbs and skin that has been exposed to time, insects and weather- resonates with my own body. There is an affinity with the tree in its rootedness to the earth, and also its vulnerability.
