Wonders and Realities: Works by Allison Edge

September 25 – October 23, 2021

“‘The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.’ These words are part of a larger quote from the pioneering environmentalist Rachel Carson, in which she laments humankind’s increasing disconnect from and disregard for the natural world. Since moving back to North Carolina, specifically to the Black Mountains, my work has become solely focused on both the wonders of the landscapes here, especially when they appear to be out of a dream or fantasy, and the sometimes fragile realities of the natural inhabitants of this area. Carson’s words echoed in my thoughts as I chose the images in this series. Whether depicting the entire ecosystem of a mountain range, or an individual moth, I hope my work will also draw some attention to the balance required for the living world of nature to thrive.”
