Moss’s current work depicts mountain ranges shaped by geological forces, heat, friction, and pressure producing massive change and upheaval to the body of Earth. In her work mountains not only signify the consequences of thrilling geological forces such, as heat, but also personifies human existence. Each individual’s story is a collection of forces resulting in a life fashioned thru trial by fire. Via these unique experiences, each individual mirrors a mountain in that they go through significant influences in a lifetime, the good, the bad, and the heated events, to emerge a unique monument of strength and wisdom unlike any other person.
