ARTIST STATEMENT

  • “The spider, dropping down from twig,
    Unwinds a thread of his devising;
    A thin, premeditated rig
    To use in rising.

    And all the journey down through space,
    In cool descent, and loyal-hearted,
    He builds a ladder to the place
    From which he started.

    Thus I, gone forth, as spiders do,
    In spider’s web a truth discerning,
    Attach one silken strand to you
    For my returning.”

    – E.B. White
