Ann Rosenthal

Over the last three decades, I have sought answers to a fundamental question: Why

are we destroying the life support systems on which all life depends? When I began

this work, I felt compelled to sound the alarm and use whatever means seemed effective: collaborating with artists, partnering with environmental and community organizations, and employing both traditional and digital media. Now

the alarms are ubiquitous. Thus I am called to engage in a “slow art” that offers a counterbalance while returning to my roots as an artist—embracing my love for the colors, textures, patterns, and forms of the natural world. I believe that we protect what we love and value. I hope my work inspires

a love and awe for the natural world, which is far more complex, wondrous, and intelligent than we can imagine.
