Twilight's Path
Twilight's Path is an ongoing project documenting wild places of the UK after nightfall. At night in a dark wood, one steps beyond the familiar trappings of human life and there is a powerful re-activation of childhood fears and wild flights of fancy - there is something almost regressive about the experience. There is a sense of unfamiliarity about the images; they present commonplace nature in a peculiar way. Artificial light brings a definition and mystery that is not available during the daylight hours.

Seeking a new mountain...
Seeking a new mountain…
Part 10 (to the furthest reaches…) Grant yourself permission in life to be surprised, to explore the very depths of yourself in order to heal that which requires remedy…. There are still natural wonders to be found on this beautiful lump of rock that spins in solitude amongst a great galaxy of stars. Places that will snatch your breath away, untouched, raw and magical. Solitude can be found…

I went into the ravine today, in a part I haven’t been at all this year. You always get a vibe of certain parts of wild places. You come to know them, and they to know you. The forest is generous, but it will also do as it pleases. And if I thought I was simply going to walk in, do my thing and leave, after so long without visiting, well, I had another thing coming.
I realized quite far into my walk that I no longer had my hat. That hat has my late great grandmother’s hatpin, so I really wanted to find it. I left my bag and jacket and scarf near a distinguishable tree as I was quite warm by that point and retraced my steps. Through brush and tall grass, and bushes, and bramble, over fallen logs, around trees, and up the hill I’d come from, and nothing. Back down the hill, around the trees, over the fallen logs, through the bramble, and bushes, and tall grass, and brush, and finally said aloud, “Keep it, then! Or give it back. Whichever. Don’t know what you’d use it for.” Ten steps after so saying, there was my fucking hat on the ground in front of me. I sighed, said thanks for the hat and for the exercise and continued on to retrieve my bag, jacket, and scarf.
By the time I left I had all my belongings, as well as nine species of consumable mushrooms, tired perhaps, but no worse for wear. It’s good to visit places you have a connection with, and there’s nothing quite like wild areas. Shit happens, you get tired, don’t have time, put it off, but if you avoid it too long, you may just find yourself being pranked in a way designed to keep you a little longer.

Happy birthday to the Wilderness Act! Wilderness designation now protects over 111 million acres of pristine wild places, providing all Americans a chance for soul-stirring adventures in nature. The Wilderness Act states that wilderness areas "shall be administered for the use and enjoyment of the American people" - and they've provided us that and so much more. Wilderness areas continue to inspire us and are vital to our physical and mental health.

Featured MFA: Grace Boyd
Our first featured MFA in 2021 is 1st year MFA with a practice in ceramics and land based art: Grace Boyd!!!
Grace is a ceramics and land based artist living nomadically across Canada. She holds a BFA from the University of Manitoba. Her early life was untamed and mostly lived outdoors, the natural beauty that surrounded her shaped her identity and art practice, drawing her to handmade objects and how they are made. The places she has lived inspire her work and inform her constant need to connect; person, place, and object. She is ever seeking a natural place to rest which drives her to create the world in which she wishes to belong.
If you want to know more about Grace, check out this post and her Instagram Site : @gracewboyd

We asked Grace about her “studio”-work. Here is was she said:
With great curiosity, I am seeking to further understand the relationship between person, place and object through the medium of ceramics and land-based materials. I wish to build a world around myself of which I want to dwell and thrive.

Do you keep a special object in your studio?
My collections. Through my explorations of the wild places I have gathered and collected a great assortment of wild objects that I identify as my treasures. These object I award places of honor in my studio, arranging them with care and thought.
"I use the landscape and nature because it's right here. I understand it better than I understand anything else.” – Peter Von Tiesenhausen
