emerging artist: Minna Graham

“I create in order to express my emotional relationship to my
surroundings. I have lived in many harsh environments, deserts and salt
lakes, mining areas, snow country and dense forests. These environments
are defined by extreme cold and heat, floods and bushfires, strong
storms and high winds. I make what I see around me- charred blackened
wood and earth, mud and teeming water, moss, leaves and bark. This is
reflected in the tactile nature of my work. I enjoy the simple beauty
found in nature and embody this in my work.”
