“A Wind Blows Through” by Miles Laventhall

 

 

Laventhall shares, “To me, stone and wood have intrinsic beauty and inference. Branches from trees personify human gesture and struggles of matter and spirit.  The passive strength of stone symbolizes timelessness and the watchful eyes and ears of history…paper and steel symbolize the fragile nature of existence within a delicate ecosystem.  They wear the stains of time in the cycle of life and return to the earth to give birth again.”

Laventhall shared with The Rickie Report that his current project is entitled “Gathering at the Waterhole”, with the statement, “Crucial issues facing humanity, and powers of nature that alter history and time to come…are the marrow of Gathering at the Waterhole…their very existence is predicated on water and their crowded numbers around the waterhole suggest the two billion people already without sustainable water to live.”
