Mag, Tresia Swain
1980 Oils on canvas
While visiting the area where she had grown up, near Grange City in Fleming County, in 1980, Tresia encountered Mag Crawford, a neighbor from her days as a child. Mag lived with a sense of wonder and appreciation for the natural world. That essentially-preindustrial mindset characterized Mag’s generation and those that preceded it, whose survival hinged upon nurturing a symbiotic relationship with those small pieces of the world that sustained them.
(This painting was completed when Tresia was student-teaching and eight months pregnant with her first child.)
