The Quiet Voice of the Outer Banks
The Quiet Voice of the Outer Banks is a profound and graceful meditation on the relationship between Nature and Art. It celebrates the paradox of the coast--a place always new, always changing and yet forever the same. Christaphora Robeers offers a unique perspective on the artistry found in coastal life. Mysterious sea creatures, elegant horses and playful birds flit among the pages. Lighthouses, the stalwart guardians of the shore, beam forth from new angles. Ocean foam and clouds shift shapes and colors. A dappled light shines on cottages, dunes and marshes. Outer Bankers immerse themselves in the everyday-- keeping shop, walking the shore, tending to fishing lines-- while at the same time fostering the ties that bind all coastal communities. Through this body of work, Christaphora Robeers bears witness to the pull of history and the power of tradition. Honoring and acknowledging the past sets us free to fully embrace the present, and the coast is the perfect nexus of these ideas. It challenges us to engage, connect with and experience the creative possibilities inherent in all aspects of life-- past, present and future.
