Holly Lyman

"As a culture, we seem to be driven more and more by impulse, always reaching for what we believe will bring us fulfillment and happiness, even if only for the moment. We seem to delight in the endless stream of distractions that tempt, entertain and otherwise distract us from our relationship with the natural world. What we have forgotten is a profoundly fundamental part of our being -- instinct -- an inner wisdom that if we listen quietly enough to engage with, becomes one of our greatest gifts. My work explores this contrasting dialogue between impulse and instinct with an emphasis on bringing it to awareness in a humorous, lighthearted way." -Holly Lyman
