    solastalgia: emotional pain caused by the present or future loss of a comforting place 


    This piece was created by layering pools of clay watercolors from a central point, resembling a heart within a body or an epicenter. 'Solastalgia' is a meditative mourning of Louisiana's changing human and physical geographies. 


    Created as a part of the 'Qualia' Collection.  Learn more about this collection, the history of the earthen materials, and the inspiration behind this piece HERE.
