Image: “Nature’s Architecture III” by Linda Briskin


Artist’s Statement: The geometry of nature is compelling, insistent and extraordinary. The series Nature’s Architecture portrays stone layers from 500 million years ago. These images were taken at the cliff face on Green Point Beach on the west coast of Newfoundland. This area is now an official international reference point for the world’s geologic time scale.

The triptych presents close-up images from the cliff walls. Each is a study in lines and textures, and intriguing in its color palette. Each is a memorial to the persistence of the earth. Each represents a different moment in the earth’s history. Each reminds us to appreciate the offerings of the earth.

Linda Briskin is a fine art photographer. She is intrigued by the permeability between the remembered and the imagined, and the ambiguities in what we choose to see. She is fascinated by the fluidity between the natural and the constructed, and the authentic and the fabricated. She has a passion for nature and seeks light, texture, lines, shadows, and reflections, images that may last only a breath. In 2021, Briskin’s photographs were published in *82 Review, The Hopper, Flare Journal and Alluvian. In 2021 and 2022, her photographs were chosen for the Herstory exhibit sponsored by Manhattan Arts International.
