About Thought That Nature:

"All these issues [of weather] hum subtly at the bottom of Trey Moody’s sweeping collection—sweeping also in the weatherian sense; it has a tremendous momentum that amounts to a tempestuous phenomenon of wind or wave or both. . . . Its dynamics, its rhythms, its scents, sights, and sounds are absolutely unique, and they assail each one of our senses, bringing them all together in a constant synesthetic event…..The fact that wind is invisible, that rain has no color, that light and snow are both clear white—here in these apparent transparencies, Moody finds the subtleties that actually shape our lives."
—Cole Swensen
