Antelope Island is the largest among ten islands in the Great Salt Lake, situated in the US state of Utah. One of its most remarkable locations is Ladyfinger Point, which has been a source of inspiration for my work for many years. The color palette, texture, and sentiment of this place have influenced my art.
In Celtic Christian tradition, there is a term called "thin places," which refers to rare locations where the distance between heaven and Earth seems to collapse. These are places where the veil between the physical world and the eternal world becomes thin. Ladyfinger Point is one such place for me. When I am there, I feel as though I am suspended between two worlds, and I feel a sense of belonging and comfort.
