Artist Information for Virginia A. Spiegel

My artwork attempts to emulate the power of Nature to make complex forms from simple materials and to endlessly recycle materials.

The twenty-two wilderness canoeing trips I have taken with my sister in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness have greatly influenced my work. My longest-running series, Boundary Waters, is based on specific places, emotions, and memories from our journeys expressed in abstract landscapes.

When not working on a series, I often create one-off artwork to comment on environmental issues or to celebrate the beauty of Nature in the Midwest.

Clover and A Bee #3

Clover and A Bee #324" x 34.5"   Photo by Photo by Deidre Adams
To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee, 
One clover, and a bee, 
And revery. 
The revery alone will do, 
If bees are few.
Emily Dickinson
