Matters of the Heart by Liz Cole

Matters of the Heart by Liz Cole

"If you ever lose your way, find a stream and follow it to the river.
The river will always carry you home"


These are the words my Grandfather shared with me while sitting on the bank of the river that my family cherished. The place of generations.

My Grandfather's words have come to take on multiple meanings as I have grown older. It is his words that carried me to rivers throughout the world.
And as I sat by each, I knew I was home.

The work in this exhibit is a composite of what was instilled in me from the beginning and has grown through time.

My passion for land, water and community.
My appreciation for family, friends and mentors.
My belief that art is simply an expression,

An expression that takes on multiple forms.

Not to be judged

Simply used as a way to share the story that each of us wishes to pass on
to
future generations.

The story teller lives in each of us.
As does our passion for that which has been given,
that which we choose to pass on.

This exhibition is dedicated to

my mother
who taught me patience

my father
who taught me that anything worth pursuing would come at a cost

my grandfather
who is always with me

and to the inspiration that lies within all.
