The First Time You Were In My Dream, 48" x 72"
edition of 3, $8900 Plexiglass mounted by Laura Jane Petelko
This work is about the beautiful world that we tread upon with need and appetite. It eludes to the distance and isolation felt in today’s modern world and the beauty and longing that invariably exists behind the artifice, yearning to thrive.
It was important for Laura Jane to photograph the creatures in pristine Canadian landscapes. Places where we can access a majesty that subsumes our human and sometimes awkward attempts at communion, enveloping us in it’s quiet indifference and spectacular beauty.
