“As an artist I have always been inspired by the diverse rhythms of our environment. It has been a great reserve of energy for my work. In my recent works instead of seeing the natural world as a rational observer, I see if from within as if through a telescope or microscope. These “nuvisions” into nature’s macro and micro energy, mass rhythm and beauty inspire new imagery for my work.”

– Allie McGhee
