This collection is about living in the rural North. Inside that, it is about isolation and love and loneliness. Landscape with Plywood Silhouettes is preoccupied with reckoning, with grief and happiness, with divorce and what constitutes family. At its core are people trying to cross the lines between them—emotional, physical, intellectual.
