My name is Sarah Frary and I am an Artist and Wilderness Enthusiast. The Spiral Unwinding is the digital foundation for my artistic expressions as well as the home of my interdependent compilations on healing through the false narrative inherent of our history, called Bewilder.
My anthem as a storyteller is for the rewilding of our communications to spark the rewilding of our hearts so that we all might collectively experience an outstanding sense of connection, collaboration, and creative enchantment with ourselves and our more-than-human kin. My ambition is curated with an advocacy for greater protection of the wilderness without us by stewarding the wilderness within us.
I was raised with privilege in a transient family and experienced a constant ache for new horizons in my adolescent years. Art, and quality time with the land, were, and remain, my beloved centers.
My heartland is Wyoming and that is where I am currently rooted. I stride on Apsaalooke grounds (Lander) but previously resided on Apsaalooke / Tsis tsis’tas /Oceti Sakowin land (Ten Sleep) for many seasonal cycles and hold a resounding love for the Lisaxpuatahchee Isawaxaawuua (Bighorn Sheep’s Mountains / Bighorn Mountains) and that feral little community. There, I learned the art of animal tracking and reading the subtle signals of the natural world, thriving wholly with red dirt always on my hands from wild crafting. I also labored as a midwife for sheep in the spring, further nurturing a passion for working with / experiencing / wild life. No place on this earth inspires me as vastly as this ever-changing landscape.
I also lived on Dena’ina Elnena land (Homer) in Alaska for a substantial amount of time and participated in a spectrum of performance art; including burlesque, community theatre, interpretive dance, stage singing, and hosting a local radio show on KBBI. I still harbor a fond relationship with this place and will return timelessly.
And before I ran far and fast to either of these landscapes – I stomped grounds on Osage land (Kentucky), where I apprenticed for tattoo and engaged in mural work and live art.
