Listen to a reading of the statement:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Suspendisse eu lorem turpis. Fusce pellentesque, nunc sit amet mollis dapibus, libero mi faucibus lectus, a feugiat sem erat nec ex. Ut nec tellus justo. Quisque lectus sapien, feugiat eu metus at, euismod lobortis nunc. Quisque ac ex id quam venenatis accumsan. Morbi non suscipit lectus. Cras convallis iaculis faucibus. Suspendisse viverra turpis purus, gravida pharetra turpis pharetra at.

Sed tempor dui lorem, non molestie justo dictum eget. Pellentesque pharetra sem eros, ac porta lectus ultrices ut. Proin semper, dolor sit amet euismod viverra, ante magna dapibus augue, vel feugiat turpis neque a dui. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus et malesuada fames ac turpis egestas. Integer ac libero pellentesque, lobortis est eget, lacinia massa. Vestibulum ut diam venenatis, venenatis turpis nec, facilisis dolor. Vivamus iaculis sapien et mi condimentum, eu feugiat diam ullamcorper. Nunc cursus interdum nulla, nec malesuada massa cursus vel. Praesent sit amet lectus in ligula tristique viverra. Ut dignissim ultricies magna ut condimentum. Curabitur euismod rutrum enim, ut aliquam orci tempus id.

Aliquam tristique tempus dolor sed pharetra. Curabitur leo ante, malesuada eu luctus sed, iaculis in mauris. Praesent in nisl semper lorem gravida luctus sed eget arcu. Sed porttitor nisi at rutrum aliquet. Sed pretium magna magna, non tempus tortor porta sit amet. Nam ut lorem id risus euismod ultrices. Integer gravida metus eget tincidunt lobortis. Ut ultricies odio id congue condimentum. In felis sem, sagittis in nulla eget, vestibulum condimentum nisi. Sed luctus quam eget mauris convallis consequat. Suspendisse pretium sed nunc ac vulputate. Integer egestas justo a ex efficitur porta. Aenean semper, neque in blandit rhoncus, dui nibh pharetra orci, at blandit ipsum eros ut massa. Donec eleifend scelerisque leo quis auctor. Proin consectetur mollis metus tristique facilisis. Etiam rutrum libero sed lacinia euismod.

I appreciate the camaraderie of artists Maïté Agopian, Todd Sherman, Marianne Stolz, Gail Priday, and Kelsey Aho, who all joined me on walks or painting sessions in the woods to talk about our projects and brainstorm ideas. I am also grateful for conversations with Margo Klass, who helped refine the visual presentation of Solace of Circles. The collaborative and community-driven nature of this program makes me confident there are traces of inspiration from everyone involved with ITOC in this work. Thank you!

Klara Maisch documents landscape change in oil paintings created on location. Klara travels to remote regions of Alaska to paint outside, where direct experiences with the processes that shape a landscape inform the visual dynamics in her work. She is currently painting places transformed by wildfires, glacier retreat, permafrost thaw, and advancing treeline. Klara’s paintings have been featured in exhibitions throughout Alaska, California, Washington, and Hawaii. She was honored to receive support from the Alaska State Council on the Arts and The Puffin Foundation for her work with In A Time of Change: Boreal Forest Stories.
