Spiraling"" Kate Clapper

"Photography serves as a venue for visual exploration of the world around me. Pattern has always drawn me in, especially when it is naturally occurring. Much of my print work references patterns observed this way. The spiral shows up again, and again in nature. It embodies the mystery of contradiction, moving inward and outward at once and always."
large opening quote symbolFor however painful and futile our struggle becomes, we have but to look outside at the birds, the deer, and the seasons to understand that change does not mean destruction, that life, however painful and even elusive it is at times, contains much joy and hilarity, pleasure and beauty for those who live within its requirements with grace.
(Paula Gunn Allen (1939-2008)
The Sacred Hoop, Recovering the Feminine in American Indian Traditions, p. 163, Beacon Press, 1986.)
