ABOUT THE ARTWORK
Earth Skin #3: Power and Magic is a handmade paper and aluminum assemblage by artist Wendy Franklund Miller. The composition of this piece is inspired by the structure of a quilt, and the contrast of materials references the vulnerability of nature and humanity. Franklund Miller notes that this piece intends to portray "the soft, pliable nature of the earth itself versus the cold, hard, unforgiving slap of machines and chemicals."
This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with Bellingham School District.
