In 2014 - my landscape shifted. My mother died. I was no longer anyone's daughter. My children married. I was no longer needed as the mother I'd been. I left my chosen profession, making a promise to myself that I'd never draw another straight line ever again.
I found myself lost in the 'not knowing' - who I was...where I was going...what new world awaited. The titles and roles that confined and defined for so many years - no longer fit.
Fast forward...and here I am.
This is a small part of a much larger personal project - a visual dialogue between my past and my present day. It is a reminder to me that the only way to the other side...is thru. And - that there is power in letting go.
I needed to uproot before rooting.
I needed to be silenced before learning to speak.
I needed to find ground before finding my wings.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Marcie Scudder’s artist's journey began almost two decades ago as a means of slowing down and recording the world thru her camera’s lens.
As a self-taught photographic fine artist, writer and yogini – she believes in the transformative healing powers of daily practice as a means of connecting to the spirit that resides within.
By yoking together the ancient teachings of yoga with her passion and love for the animal and natural world, Marcie’s art acts as a visual and verbal expression of simplicity, silence, solitude and self.
Like life itself, her art is an ever-evolving process. She likens it to a vinyasa yoga practice, a continuous connection between movement and breath.
Currently, Marcie lives and works in Stowe, VT.
From her treetop studio, she finds inspiration in the changing seasons and majestic views of the mountains.
