Natural Geometry: Circles, Spirals and Connections
Neilson’s paintings integrate realism in details with natural geometry and symbolism in compositions. This group shows a particular interest in circle or spiral designs and the Fibonacci sequence found over and over again in nature.
Micro and Macro Worlds
Big and small, everything weaves together and we all depend on connections. Balance in nature is intricate, subtle and fascinating.
What is the Biophilia Effect?
“the passionate love of life and of all that is alive… ”
Eric Fromm (Social Psychologist and Philosopher)
Art for Conservation
Living slowly, next to a protected regional park in British Columbia, Neilson sees endangered owls and Pacific blue tailed skinks right in her own backyard. She admires the persistent survivors in the forest, in gardens, in orchards and in cities. Biophilia is essential for community sustainability and personal happiness.
Our understanding of the importance of environmental conservation becomes increasingly important, the more we notice and care about our place in the natural world.
At Forest House Studio, Neilson is grateful to be able to spend time in nature and to share the experience through her art.
“the sudden awareness of the citizenry of all things within one world.”
Mary Oliver (American Poet)
