“Edge of the Wild”
Jennifer Moss

Design Statement:
The image itself is meant to represent an aspect of Alaskan life of living on the edge of wilderness. We find pride in this wilderness and it is one of the reasons many of us live here and Denali is often represented as our steward of that ideal. Since our town is on this edge, there are stylized graphic elements in this piece that suggest a balance between the wild and our orderly city.

Author Bio:
I am interested in the layering of textural landscapes from the very small to the very large. Abstracted layers of meaning are presented through the spaces of deconstructed and rewoven ideas inspired by potential for new experience. The interrelationship between these textural moments and our community center is exciting to me. My art is influenced by graphic arts and design, which is my long time profession. Living in the great land of Alaska for the past thirty years has been a wonderful experience and has provided lots of inspiration. The long, cold, dark, and monochromatic landscapes of winter are a canvas for the imagination. Digital design is a natural medium for exploring the creative in this sometimes stark environment.
