Nothing Gold Can Stay

The title of this series of paintings comes from a poem by Robert Frost. It is beautifully simple and has a resonance with our modern day and mans relationship with nature.

Robert Frost  1874 – 1963

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold,
Her early leaf’s a flower;But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

The Water Rises

The title of this series of works comes from a piece of music involving Laurie Anderson’s collaboration with The Kronos Quartet. The series of paintings make a reference to climate change issues.
