The Fiercely Gentle Artwork of Olivia Pendergast

"we think that because we go bungee jumping, that's enlivening, but there's always a safety net. Just as there are always curbs to keep you from careening off the roads when you're driving. Whereas in the villagers I visited, your life is in your hands there. And if you go off the road, there's no one who's going to find you, maybe for days. You are responsible for your own life in a way that we're not required to be here." ~Olivia Pendergast, figurative oil painter, Vashon Island, Washington
