New original prints by Emma Stibbon echo the vast, desolate lands encountered during her residency at Hawai Volcanoes National Park. From direct sketches and photographic records, Stibbon brings to paper the dry, stark intensity experienced at the cusp of some of the world's most active Volcanoes. Broken Terrain and Tree Ka'u Dessert convey the tension within a limbo terrestrial, balancing stillness and beauty with eruption and destruction.
