Solastalgia (Latin “solacium” comfort, Greek “algia” pain): a form of existential melancholia, or nostalgic homesickness, resulting from devastating environmental changes in a beloved homeland. These series of works explore the female body as ancient, enduring cultural symbols of nature in Western Classical tradition, deities unable to offer protection or blessings in the Anthropocene Epoch.
