Inspiration, Every Day

I've come to feel quite fortunate that I pass by these art pieces each day as I head down the corridor to my office. They are part of a "field notes" series by landscape photographer Terri Warpinski. I find myself frequently drawn to art that seems like it could have come out of a decades-old traveler's diary. These pieces--with their layers and pencil marks and hand-printed photos--have the weight and texture of time, though not falsely so. The incorporation of history, architecture, maps, collage, and black-and-white photography draws me into Terri's combined experience as an artist and a traveler. I'm so glad they found a home in my office building.
