Toril Booker-Fisher artwork now on display at Driftless Cafe

Posted by on Feb 17, 2014 in Misc, News | 0 comments

Toril Fisher studied painting and metals at the University of Wisconsin- Madison and completed her BFA at Pacific Lutheran University in Washington State.  She currently resides in La Farge, Wisconsin and manages a small farm, Second Cloud On The Left Farm, with her husband, Drew and her parents.  The farm specializes in growing all heirloom, endangered and rare varieties of produce. (Scroll down for art gallery) She is also the Development Coordinator for WDRT, Driftless Community Radio, 91.9fm Viroqua. When asked for an artist statement, Toril hesitates to write a formal statement about her work for fear of making frozen comments that potentially gain too much authority on what is depicted in her work. Toril is currently working on a series of paintings where she  is rehabilitating  old beehive lids that she found in the woods. She is using the lids as canvas to paint compositions filled with images of beauty and interconnectedness of all living creatures and our amazing Mother Earth. (scroll down for more info) She selected beehive lids with a strategic purpose and vision in mind.  Toril states, “With the USDA de-regulation of 24d herbicide (50% of the mixture of 24d is Agent Orange), we continue to see a systemic failure to protect the health of our environment and our children. Additionally, bee populations are in rapid decline as a result of mono-crop cultures and the increased use of these dangerous chemicals.”  Her hope is that by placing images of our relationship to nature on the homes which housed these vital and beautiful creatures, she might begin a conversation. Her work will be on display and for sale at the Driftless Cafe in Viroqua in May 2014.   Toril will donate a percentage of her sales from this show to The Xerces Society. The Xerces Society advocates on behalf of threatened, endangered, and at-risk invertebrates and their habitats. From the world’s rarest butterflies, to caddisflies that live solely in one stream, to declining bumble bee populations, the Xerces Society is dedicated to protecting invertebrates and the ecosystems that depend on them. for more information....
