Lowell Gustafson, “Nature’s Artistic Narrative.” Journal of Literature and Art Studies, October 2017, Vol. 7, No. 10, doi: 10.17265/2159-5836/2017.10.000Many people have devoted their professional lives to translating and understanding the artistic narrative told by light, stones, bones, and blood. There is still much we do not understand about the epic saga told by nature about creativity and destruction, coherence and surprise, colors and lines, and so much else. But we can read in nature the major chapters of an improbable story about where we came from, how we got here, and what we are made of. The nature—the stories—from which we have emerged have led to our abilities to explicitly imagine, to create more complex and beautiful relationships, or to end our chapter.
