Todd Stewart Statement


Artist Statement
On an intimate level the photographs in The Garden are intended to be an expression of the wonder encountered by each of us as we explore the complexities of the contemporary natural experience.

For many years my concerns as an artist have centered on the relationship between nature and culture. With the birth of our twins Ethan and Lily in 2002, the lives of my children have occupied a growing portion of my creative activity. The quiet instances of discovery and revelation I observe as they each attempt to define their own individual relationship with the natural world are the moments I value most as both an artist and father. Using the metaphor of the garden to represent both nature and creation, I hope to explore the notion that we are all simultaneously part of, and separate from, this process.
