Lois Lowry once again creates a mysterious but plausible future world. It is a society ruled by savagery and deceit that shuns and discards the weak. Left orphaned and physically flawed, young Kira faces a frightening, uncertain future. Blessed with an almost magical talent that keeps her alive, she struggles with ever broadening responsibilities in her quest for truth, discovering things that will change her life forever. As she did in THE GIVER, Lowry challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, how people could evolve, and what could be considered valuable. Every reader will be taken by Kira’s plight and will long ponder her haunting world and the hope for the future.

This set of drawings and paintings is a means to explore building. The building is imbued with the qualities of elusive memories and images that have been rediscovered and reconsidered through making. The qualities are linked back to place, the place of a bath house and sailing club at Smith Mountain Lake. In seeking qualities, the work explores the relationship between flatness and depth, line and color, form and image, and therefore architecture and painting. The work draws out and gathers disparate blues and searches for those transient aspects of the world that can be rendered eternal.
