During a time when everyone seems to be having strange and disturbing dreams, Carr reminds us of the power of our own fears. Along with its important — and timely — theme, a highlight of LIGHT IN THE FOREST is clearly the beautiful painted silk illustrations. The care and talent that went into creating them are evident, especially as the silk paintings, in non-book form, are actually larger-than-life pieces of art created for an installation at the Acadia University Art Gallery.
Nature, Art, and Comfort With Artist Holly Carr - By Phoebe Jenner
Carr’s inspiration for her work was her own personal experiences with nighttime fears; like many children, her son struggled with anxiety when left in the dark. Carr drew upon his love of woodland creatures and created a safe space for him to enter before going to bed, one that would, she hoped, remind him that the dark shapes he was afraid of in the night were actually familiar and harmless and that animals could appear as both frightening and lovable.
LABYRINTH OF GREEN, a collection of poetry and photographs by Diana Hayes is the perfect book to curl up with and take your mind off the COVID-19 tsunami. In her quiet voice and powerful words, Diana takes us through the labyrinth of nature and memory, a path of joy and grief, yearning, love, and gratitude, that leads to blessings and contentment. #poetry #canadianpoetry #publishing
