"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"Kerstin, next to an old-growth stump, Coos County, Oregon" (1999-2003)
"If you haven’t loved a tree enough (if not to hug it, at least to want to walk up to it and touch it as if you’re touching a profound mystery)- if that experience has eluded you- I feel bad for you because you’re not going to live a happy life."
- Robert Adams
