Artists Statement:
Growing up in a rural Colorado setting, as a young girl, Reven built forts in ditches, chased and rode wild horses and hunted lizards with her sister, Channing. It was a childhood experience that ran closely with the rhythms of the natural world. A farmer’s moon is term that is coined to describe the full-moon caught in a rainbow-colored halo. It means the thick atmosphere surely promises moisture. Some years the coming moisture is a blessing. Some years it’s causes a dreadful loathing of the unpredictable and unwelcome forces of Mother Nature.
In this sculpture, the artist is exploring the shapes of the “Dancing Moon” series in a most whimsical fashion. It’s one of the more intimate pieces that reflects the artist’s personal childhood experiences.
