Atmospheric Colors and Encounters in the Landscape
In this body of work I am exploring atmospheric colors and landscape as a metaphor for spiritual experience. The theme of â€œthe burning bushâ€ from the Book of Exodus recurs as well as the dynamic play of light and darkness and point toward the possibility of a similar mystical encounter in the landscape. Margie believes that such encounters are available to all humans not just a specialized few and do, in fact, occur frequently.
