Statement for Katherine Nelson
“Wheat Heartland Prayer”
© 2014 Acrylic on fiberglass Amun Figure
“Wheat Heartland Prayer” …Created to celebrate Earth’s hard working farmers who inherently know that planting a seed is an act of faith.
I am inspired by the legacy of human spirit contained in the luminous lands of the Palouse renowned for farming and geological history. This landscape region is visually defined by winding rhythmic flowing lines that describe, for me, a spiritually nurturing Mother Earth. Nothing remains the same on the Palouse wheat fields as change is captured in each moment of the lifecycle of wheat from germination to final harvest in the course of one season. Therein lies the Spirit in abundant changing wheat fields, the farmers’ lyrical furrows engraved on the earth, the spectrum of ripening crops, and the rhythmic flow of the sky.
