Artist Statement from Peter Marbach:
During normal times, creating art on demand can be incredibly challenging. There is no guarantee that on the day I venture out to create an exhibit-worthy image, all the elements of what makes a compelling composition will be present. It can often take days, or many weeks, until warm light, shadows, [and] clouds all align in one decisive moment of unspeakable beauty.
But these are not ordinary times. The anxiety of COVID, extreme weather, smoke from wildfires, and park closures forced me to rise to the moment. This two-year journey taught me much about staying resilient, focused, and determined to not lose faith that I would accomplish what I was asked to do.
It is my hope this exhibit inspires people to seek out the gifts of joy, beauty, and healing that time spent in these treasured parks always provides.
