Introduction by John O’Hern

“Mary Oliver stood among the flowers and wrote, ‘The poet must not only write the poem but must scrutinize the world intensely, or anyway that part of the world he or she has taken for subject. If the poem is thin, it is likely so not because the poet does not know enough words, but because he or she has not stood long enough among the flowers—has not seen them in any fresh, exciting, and valid way.’ …

Born in Germany, Marie-Theres Berger studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and at the École du Louvre in Paris where she now lives. At the École du Louvre she studied the artists of French fauvism and German expressionism who continue to inspire her work.
