Dark and still, unfinished and frozen, the backyard pond reminds a young boy of his father’s recent death, but as the weather thaws and new life grows, the grieving family takes comfort in its tadpoles, newts, and lilies. The Pond is a gentle expression of coping with love and loss. Deep tones and Cathy Fisher’s images of nature surround the shadowy boy, his brother, and his mum as they find solace.
