Regarding the Freedom Triptych: "I've always been intrigued by a 3-panel triptych as a means of presenting artwork. Your triptych of the shoreline of Lake Ontario caught me off-guard. For the first time, I saw a dynamic purpose to a triptych. It was like the waves had a place in time and space. I felt a rhythm as the waves progressed along the panels..there was a 3D  dimensionality on the canvas surface, as well as the flow along the wall. It certainly seemed like the water was almost alive."

Catherine Bovaird, Niagara Falls

This collection of art and poetry was gathered to display the artist’s broad love and respect for the power, beauty, and bounty of nature as it serves us and as we serve it well. From raging fires and powerful waterfalls that cleanse the earth and prepare it for new growth to the immense sky that blows us where it wills or offers space to fall free. From the comforting unique beauty of every tree and the bounty it offers when we feed it right. From the tenderness of the shoreline’s welcoming nature to the mystery of the patterns permeating through nature- as here in a sea shell that echoes the hand of a Creator.

This collection also serves as an illustration to the personal challenges we face as individual humans. Nature reflects our ability to hurt but heal; be stunted or grow. Upon reflection on these pieces, the artist hopes to leave the viewer with a sense of awe and eternity, with a humbling hope rather than hopeless dread. Lorenda also has written commentaries about each piece. Feel free to connect with her if you’d like to respond to these ideas.
