Glowing Embers of Ice

Embers of a fading world?  Or embers of hope for a beautiful new Arctic dawn?


Glowing Embers of Ice

Glowing Embers of Ice – Pastel Painting

Glowing Embers of Ice is the first in a series of narrative paintings by Anita Young in which she uses visual imagery, symbolism and reflective commentary to explore some of the issues affecting the natural world today.


In our ultra-fast-moving human world of instant communication, where brevity and speed are increasingly given precedence over all else, the series Pictures of a Thousand Words was inspired by a wish to encourage the viewer to allow themselves a contemplative pause in which they can absorb the message with both heart and mind.

It is hoped that the painting Glowing Embers of Ice will itself convey a visual story which can be interpreted by each individual in their own way.  But it is also hoped that the powerful accompanying narrative will help to encourage a deeper understanding of the challenges faced by our fellow creatures using a language in which they themselves are not able to communicate.


If you talk to the animals they will talk with you and you will know each other.
If you do not talk to them you will not know them, and what you do not know you will fear.
What one fears one destroys.

Chief Dan George (Teswahno) – Salish  1899 – 1981
