Join Thaddeus as he shares of lifetime of documenting the complex and often deteriorating relationship between man and his environment. Using the unique combination his visual artist, teaching, letterpress printing and publishing skills he has told stories that capture our world in a deep and meaningful way. “The meaning that resides in my bodies of work goes beyond visual description; they stand as a history of the play between human intervention and the landscape. The result is both an anecdote of an ordinary place and a metaphor for our relationship to place and environment. What emerges is a sense of vulnerability and the inexorable force of time.” To see his work visit https://holownia.com/ and http://anchoragepress.ca/
