'SPRING ETERNAL • A SINGLE MOMENT' (2022) | by: N.C. Winters
'Spring Eternal' is the return. The inevitable rebirth of Spring that reliably follows the cold dormancy of Winter. The new beginning and hope that comes no matter how cold, dark, and stormy the winter has been. In a season that has felt like a long winter (in so many different ways) it is a good habit to remember that in fact 'this too, shall pass.' As trite and pithy as the aphorism is, there’s a reason it continues to have such staying power, and why it seems more important than ever to hold front of mind.
A single instant of time, seen in two parts:
The calm reflection on the moment after.
'A Single Moment' despite the title, is in fact two individual prints. These accompanying images serve to bookend the Spring season. A singular instant of time, split into a dual experience. First: the opportunity to take a single moment, to be present in the experience and exist entirely within that instance and nowhere else. No past, no future, only present. Second: to recollect and reflect on the memory of the moment after it has passed. To reflect on the experience of a moment after the fact, to be cognizant of the fact that life continues to move inevitably forward, and that we can remember and learn from our past.

Spring can come as a renewal or rebirth. A shrugging off of the chill of dormancy and end to the isolation of winter hibernation. The new season brings a renewed sense of vigor and vitality, marked by vibrant blooms of nature, and the return of flowering organic life. 'Serene' blossoms with calm organic greens and warm earthy tones, a celebration of the new natural season.

While Spring can bring a new season of peace, it can also herald an exciting period of wild and intense change. An extreme awakening that challenges old ideas, punctuated by fierce growth and dynamic new ways of being and seeing the world. 'Vivid' bursts in vibrant cyans, pinks, blues and purples. An exciting leap into the future and unknown.
• Nostalgia colorway •
Edition of 50 • $140
And then there are the memories of past Spring seasons of old. The periods of rebirth and change of yesteryear that now exist only in the rearview mirror, relegated to the scrapbook of memory. Care should be taken not to dwell too much on the past, but the memories of past Spring seasons can be remembered fondly or with melancholy. 'Nostalgia' reflects on the past in desaturated sepias, and the faded tones of a distant memory.
