“We have forgotten that nature is not something outside of us—someplace we go hiking in on the weekend—but that it is us.”
— Suzanne Paleczny
Chloe Dragon Smith recently interviewed Suzanne Paleczny, a new member of Women for Nature. As a visual artist working in Whitehorse, her practice focuses on the human-nature relationship. In a captivating interview, Smith asks about her personal connection to nature, about her recent exhibit Human/Nature at the Yukon Arts Centre, and her artistic philosophy.
